Powhatan’s Daughter March
Powhatan’s Daughter March from The Complete Marches of John Philip Sousa: Vol. 4


“Powhatan’s Daughter” (1907)


This was the march that first endeared Sousa to the Indians of America. It was a salute to Pocahontas, daughter of Chief Powhatan, and was written for the Jamestown Exposition of 1907. This exposition marked the three hundredth anniversary of the first English settlement in America.
