Pocahontas Statue, Jamestown Island, Williamsburg, Virginia

 
This statue of Pocahontas, also known as Matoaka, is a popular photo spot. Visitors to Jamestown Island hold her hands while they pose, as the shiny brass shows. Pocahontas married John Rolfe and traveled to England, where she died. She is buried a St. George's Church, Gravesend, England. The Governor of Virginia presented a reproduction of this statue to the church in 1958. Recently, the marriage of Pocahontas and Rolfe was reenacted at Jamestown Island.
