Abstract

This essay examines four contemporary adolescent historical fictions featuring Pocahontas. It argues that three of the Pocahontas novels perpetuate whiteness ideologies through generic strategies. The fourth adolescent novel uses counter-storytelling methods to destabilize the white privilege found in the Pocahontas mythohistory and other Pocahontas narratives.
