Miss Piggy as Pocahontas, and Kermit as John Smith.

Pocahontas (1595-1617) was a Native American woman who has become a legendary figure due to her supposedly saving English explorer John Smith from death through her intervention. The story comes from Smith's own often embellished book, and later versions (particularly a 1995 animated feature from Disney) often depicted the story as a cross-cultural romance. It is historical fact that Pocahontas existed and did assist the Jamestown settlers, however. She actually wed another Englishman, John Rolfe.
