Tales from Wanderings Past
Meanwhile, a contradiction in Native history, in Pocahontas, Iowa...
We were the ones following a tip we received at the diner to find Ms. Pocahontas standing guard in front of her workforce assistance tee-pee.
Just to clarify.... Pocahontas, whose story has been re-written for/by Disney-types, was from the Powhatan tribe, in the Jamestown Virginia area. They lived in long houses. Tee-pees, on the other hand, were used by the Plains tribes, who were more nomadic and needed a quick shelter. The Ioway people who actually lived in Iowa maintained a lodge (wigwam-esque) home more similar to the Powhatans than the tee-pee dwellers.
