Pocahontas’s feather is back, again, after being found by a dog in the muddy banks of the Thames along the Promenade.
It was handed in to TownCentric tourism office workers Karen Gingles, 37, and Kayleigh Hall, 18, in Gravesend.
Karen said: “We didn’t catch the man’s name but he said he’d been down by the Prom and was walking his dog when he came across it.
“He said the dog found it in the sand and luckily he realised what it was.”
Earlier this month, Gravesham council forked out £1,000 for a new feather after it was stolen from the Native American princess’s headdress just before Christmas.
But now the first feather is back.
After visiting England, Pocahontas was due to set sail from Gravesend and travel back to her native state of Virginia in 1617.
She became seriously ill just offshore, not far from where her feather was found, and died, aged just 21. It is believed she was buried in the grounds of the church.
