When the American Discovered Europe

Europeans discovered America but Americans also discovered Europe, a rarely mentioned story.

Pocahontas’s father sent one of his tribe back to England with the Pilgrims and gave him a stick, telling him to put a notch in the stick each time he saw a new Englishmen. The chief wanted to know what he was dealing with.

When the poor Indian pulled into the harbor he was flabbergasted by the crowds of people around the docks. He took one look at the crowds, looked down at his stick, looked back at the crowds and then simply threw his stick into the water.

I have heard this story before, so after reading it again on R-World, I realize it must certainly be true :D
