This event will commemorate the death of Pocahontas in England on March 21, 1617, and will demonstrate the friendship of the colonists and Powhatan Indians during the winter preceding her death. Lectures and presentations will focus on Pocahontas’ life as a Virginia Indian and English woman.

Throughout this special event, guests of Henricus Historical Park will spend time in Mt. Malady, the recreated first English hospital, as interpreters portray a physician, surgeon, and apothecary while demonstrating the probable last hours of Pocahontas by exploring English medical treatment of the time period.

Additionally, Powhatan interpreters will demonstrate how Pocahontas’ people may have treated her death and explore their traditions of burial.  Native American historians will offer lectures on the history and legacy of Pocahontas.

Cost: $8 Adults, $6 children aged 3-12/Henricus Patrons free
