Pocahontas Coloring Pages
Who is your favorite Disney princess? Is it the Frozen sisters, Elsa and Ana? Or the kind-hearted Belle? Or maybe the brave and adventurous one, Pocahontas? Well if it's the latter, than you'll be excited to see the many Pocahontas coloring pages below. The young native American princess looks very beautiful with her dark long hair and her slim figure. In the following printables, you can see her with her lovable pet, Meeko the raccoon. You can also see her with the love of her life, John Smith. My favorite, however, is the one where she can be seen singing with the jungle birds. She sure has a beautiful voice in the movie.
Pocahontas is the first of all Disney princesses that I made a specific post about. I'll be sure to make other posts covering other princesses like Cinderella, Aurora, Belle, and many others. So, stick around with me. Anyway, all of these coloring pages are free for personal use only. They must not be used or involved in any commercial activity. You can print them on your own and have fun coloring them but you must never commercialize them. All that being said, I hope you enjoy this.

Pocahontas Fun Facts
- Pocahontas was born in Werowocommoco, Virginia, about 20 miles from Jamestown, and home of her father, Powhatan, who was chief of over 30 tribes. Her mother died after she was born and Pocahontas soon became her father’s favorite child. Powhatan had 27 children.
- Pocahontas was a nickname meaning "the naughty one". As a child she was given the name Matoaka. As she grew older, she was called Amonute. Before marrying John Rolfe, Pocahontas was baptized and took the Christian name "Rebecca."
- Pocahontas was not a princess in the political sense but Captain Ralph Hamor wrote that Pocahontas was her father’s–his “delight and darling.”
- Despite being the chief's daughter, Pocahontas' childhood would have been similar to most Native American girls. She would have lived in a thatched roof hut, learned how to make a fire and cook, searched for food such as berries and nuts in the woods, and played games with other children. As far as we know, Pocahontas had a peaceful and happy childhood.
- It took five years to finish the film. Apparently Pocahontas was a huge job for Disney Studio due to its many details and unique use of colors and it took a longer-than-average time frame to make Pocahontas and John Smith's world come to life. Pocahontas herself required 55 animators. No wonder she's so flawless.
- The film was released right around the titular character's real life birthday. Disney's Pocahontas was released on June 23, 1995, right around Pocahontas' real birthday. It is thought that she was born in 1595, making her 400 year old at the time of the film's distribution.
- Pocahontas and Mulan are the only Disney animated movies inspired by a true story. What makes Pocahontas even more special is it is the first Disney movie to feature an interracial relationship.
- The movie has both been celebrated and condemned for it's portrayal of Native Americans. However, activist and the voice of Powhatan Russell Means called it the "single best representation of American Indians that Hollywood has ever done."
