I've always wondered about this...
Why doesn't Disney's Pocahontas look Native American but rather Asian?

Many native americans look asian, it depends on the tribe. In fact, all pure blooded native americans originate from asia because thousands of years ago, they migrated across the bering land bridge between Russia and Alaska (This was long ago before the continents separated), hence how humans (evolved out of sub-saharan africa) could be in north america despite not having the technology to cross oceans.
^^ They have very wide cheekbones and upward tilting eyes, which is an Asian phenotype.1
