Actually, Pocahontas and Nakoma talk during Pocahontas' introductory scene, about whether they are too old for messing around.

Yes Nakoma talks to Pocahontas but in the same conversation (and the entire purpose OF their conversation),she tells Pocahontas about her fathers return and how Pocahontas should tell her father about her dream

Nakoma warns Pocahontas about possible harms when she dives from the waterfall.

This is a great movie.

I think this does pass, as Pocahontas has a conversation with Nakoma that counts.

Nakoma warns Pocahontas not to "go out there" again and asks her not to lie for her, saying she'll be turning her back on her own people if she goes. Pocahontas responds that she's trying to help her people, before leaving.

You guys are also forgetting the conversations about Poca's mother between Grandmother Willow and Pocahontas. It definitely passes.

Definitely passes. Even if a man is mentioned in some of the conversations. As long as, at some point, they're talking about something other than a man, it counts. The test is MEANT to be super easy to pass. That's the point. It's ridiculously easy and yet so many fail.
