Storyboard Text

  • THE EUROPEANS ARRIVED ON A CARRIBEAN ISLAND.
  • WE HAVE FINALLY REACHED THE INDIES!!!
  • Columbus,there's other people here...
  • Give me the flag. I'm claiming this land for Spain.
  • These people are not like us. 
  • THE ISLANDERS KOWN AS THE TAINO WERE AWARE.
  • They could be trading partners. We could share our stuff with these men.
  • They could be invaders...
  • The people of the foreign land traded with them, and showed the Spanish great amounts of kindness. In return, the Spanish proceeded to introduce theirselves. 
  • So nice of you to visit! You are different, but that will not stop us from caring for you.
  • You are the Indians! I found my way to Asia! The monarchs will LOVE ME for this!
  • I feel like I have smallpox or something...
  • Take care! Until next time?
  • THE TWO DIVERSE CULURES CLASHED, AND IT WENT WELL. THERE WAS ONE MINOR SETBACK, HOWEVER. THE SPANISH WANTED MORE GOLD THAN THEY RECIEVED.
  • I don't get it. They treated us as trading equals, but they didn't hand us enough riches! They must really not know what I'm doing here, because I am not your average trading parner. I am Christopher Columbus, and I arrive in the name of God, glory, and GOLD!
  • Now where's... my...
  • GOLD?
