While the magical, fantastical world of Disney is much loved and popular the world over, it has its fair share of detractors too. Critics accuse Disney of feeding young minds with highly improbable fantasies and stories that only non-existent fairies can make them come true. But Disney has a story to its credit that shuts up these critics. Pocahontas, released in 1995, was the first animated Disney movie to be based on true historical incidents. It not only featured a story from American history, but became a visual lesson of the American past, and a union that changed the world's outlook about Native American Indians forever.

The movie draws inspiration from events that occurred between Pocahontas and John Smith, as the British settlers from the Virginia Company landed on Native American soil. Pocahontas, daughter of Chief Powhatan, strikes a chord with the audience. Her free-spirited, nonconformist fighter's spirit portrays her in a complete new light as compared to other Disney princesses. She is no damsel is distress, but one who is ready to walk the line for those she loves, even if it comes at the cost of her own life. She is willing to fight for her love against all odds, but also willing to win love at any cost. Her powerful nature has made Pocahontas an iconic Disney character for young minds. A brief collection of famous quotes from the movie speak of determination, valor, honor, and righteousness in ways that makes this tribe the real civilized lot that many savages can learn from.
