Even though Pocahontas's father was at war with the English, Pocahontas still helped the English. She provided them with corn and other foods. She even told them of her father's plans of attack against the English.
The Rest of Pocohantas's Life.
Pocahontas even rescued Smith from execution. Her father had him captive, and he was going to be beaten to death by clubs. Smith wrote in a letter to Queen Anne that stated Pocahatas had layed herself down over Smith to save his life.(Some historians believe this is a myth.)
Prepare to Die!
Later Pocahontas was lured onto a ship by Sir Samuel Argall. He wanted to use Pocahontas to bribe Powhatan to get back their men and food from him. Powhatan released 7 Englishmen but no weapons. So Sir Samuel Argall kept her as captive, and he took her to England.
