Like her late mom, the title character of “Pocahontas” is a free spirit with a strong will and a member of the Powhatan tribe of Native Americans. She is highly spiritual, kind to her loved ones and very intelligent. But instead of wishing for a prince to scoop her up and take her away to a more exciting place, Pocahontas spends her time communing with nature and exploring her homeland. Okay, so there is a guy named John Smith whom Pocahontas falls in love with, but she makes it clear that she’s the one in charge of her destiny, not him.
