Is it offensive to dress up as Pocahontas?

Anonymous
I understand why it is considered offensive to dress up as a native American "indian" as a costume. Would it also be inconsiderate for someone to dress up as Pocahontas, as she is an actual historical figure and a disney character as well?
I personally feel like it would be okay considering you would be dressing as an actual character and person rather than just using an entire culture as a costume, but what's your opinion?
