    Pocahuntus red indians

    "I used to watch Pocahuntus(an animated series) earlier. In one episode they showed that there were several red indians in a tribe and they had to perform a ritual. There was a pole and several ropes were coming out of it. Each one had a hook at the end. Those hooked were attached(by penetration) to the chest of five red indians. They had to rotate(or move in a circular way) around that pole so that the rope could get tighter with the completion of each circular movement and take the flesh out of their chests and whoever died would be considered the chosen one(chosen by God)". Please check. I think I didn't have to capitalise "red" and "indian".

    Re: Pocahuntus red indians

    Do not capitalize red. Do capitalize Indian. (Did I answer your question?)

    As far as I'm aware, her name was Pocahontas.

    It's not politically correct to say "red Indians." Say "American Indians." Or "Native Americans."

    Re: Pocahuntus red indians

    I'm guessing this was not the Disney version. Self-mutilation and human sacrifice rarely show up in their movies.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    That would make them more palatable for me!

    Perhaps:

    I used to watch Pocahantas on TV. (It was an animated series.)


    The verb phrase "used to" indicates the action happened in the past, so you don't need "earlier" there.
