Power and Resistance
A Study of Pocahontas from the Perspective of Postcolonialism
University of Electronic Science and Technology of China, Zhongshan Institute, Faculty of Foreign Language, Zhongshan Guangdong
This paper analyses the Disney animated film Pocahontas through the lens of Said’s Orientalism and Spivak’s feminism in post-colonial theory. The film represents the interaction of power between the coloniser and the colonised people, a rebellion against the Oriental imaginary represented by the Third World people of Pocahontas. As the quintessential representative of the Indian people, such resistance and challenge is of great significance to the forced silence of the Third World people for reflection and self-reconstruction.
