Storyboard Description

My cartoon shows how Jackson and the Native Americans had clashed on the topic of whose land it was. Jackson believed the Native Americans to be savages and barbarians that did not even have the ability to take care of themselves, much less their country. The reason that Jackson believes this is because before Jackson had been born, his father died, which left his mother to solely care for her three children. Because some of Jackson's family had been slaughtered by the past Native Americans, his mother repeated told him about how the Native Americans were savages and barbarians that couldn't and shouldn't be trusted. Because of this, he had a very biased opinion of the Native Americans, even though the ones at that time were very peaceful and were not aggressive. I used two persuasive techniques. One of these techniques was that of irony. The way that I had used irony was that when Jackson was sending the Native Americans, it was shown that he was using a bow and arrow, which was the most common thing for the Native Americans to use when they are fighting. This is irony because and American is using the Native Americans weapons for their own uses AGAINST the Native Americans. The second persuasive technique that I had used was that of simile. I used the simile when explaining how the Native Americans gave up on explaining to Jackson because the simile said that you can teach a cat how to be a dog, which in this case would mean that the Native Americans couldn't teach Jackson their beliefs on the topic.
