the World of Pocahontas

Be an eyewitness to the marriage of Pocahontas and John Rolfe in honor of the 400th anniversary of their 1614 wedding at Jamestowne. The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation and Preservation Virginia, in collaboration with the Pamunkey Indian Museum and Cultural Center and the Patawomeck Heritage Foundation, are hosting a series of public programs, lectures, and an exhibit focused on the life and marriage of Pocahontas at Historic Jamestowne.

Pocahontas and John Rolfe

On April 5, 2014, visitors will have a unique opportunity to experience Pocahontas’s marriage to Englishman John Rolfe at the original site where the wedding took place. In 2010, archaeologists uncovered the location of the 1608 church in James Fort, the site of the 1614 marriage. In addition to the commemoration of the marriage, visitors will have a number of opportunities to participate in eyewitness living history programs, lectures, and tours extending through the summer of 2014.

The Marriage of Pocahontas and the “True Religion”
Diego de Molina, a Spanish captain, has spent the last three years as a prisoner at Jamestown. He will be allowed an interview with those wishing to meet him, but, beware--he is alleged to be a Spanish spy! In June 1611, he was captured when his warship anchored near the English Fort Algernon at Point Comfort near the mouth of the James River. During de Molina's captivity, Jamestown has recovered from the "starving time" and a war with the Virginia Indians. The English now enjoy a tenuous peace following Pocahontas's conversion to Protestant Christianity and her recent marriage to English colonist John Rolfe. De Molina no doubt dreads the impact this will have on Catholic Spain in the New World.
