Inevitable Uprising: 1622–1646

In 1622, the short-lived peace between the English and Powhatan Indians since the marriage of Pocahontas and John Rolfe ended. Hundreds of Powhatan warriors launched a simultaneous attack against scattered English settlements, killing nearly one-quarter of the settlers. To the Powhatan, this uprising was a response to decades of violence and the loss of their land and culture since the English colony was established. The era of turmoil would come to an end with the decline of the Powhatan Chiefdom, making Powhatan Indians subjects of the English.
