What conflicts did the colonists and the Powhatan tribe have leading up to the conflict? The settlers had arrived with little resources and were having trouble surviving. They received help from tribes but this was done through putting pressure on them. Could the settlers have tried to get along with the Powhatan tribe better? Maybe learn the customs and respect their values rather than seeing them as uncivilized? Could the colonists have taught the Native Americans skills in exchange for knowledge and help?
