• What are your goals and objectives for taking this Course? If the Pocahontas Project can help you achieve them, please let us know how. Your input will help us customize this informational and inspirational experience for you.
• What knowledge do you already hold regarding Pocahontas? Consider the context of your understanding – does what you know place Pocahontas in the context of her culture, or in yours?
• What do you need intellectually and spiritually to better understand the worldview of Pocahontas’ people more completely? Whatever that is, students are asked to look for it in this Course and please ask for it if you don’t find it.
