Pocahontas Neytiri is a Native American Na'vi princess who lives on the New World Pandora and spends her free time talking to Grandmother Willow communing with the Hometree. Her father Chief Powhatan Eytukan had her betrothed to the serious warrior Kocoum Tsu'tey, but she's not very interested. Instead she goes for John Smith Jake Sully, a famed explorer human in the Avatar program who was among the settlers RDA members who came to the New World Pandora looking for gold unobtanium.
If you haven't figured it out, Neytiri is just like Pocahontas, except she's blue da ba dee da ba die.
