Storyboard Text

  • Personification
  • From the cliff I could see the skin canoes darting here and there over the kelp beds, barely skimming the water, and the long spears flying like arrows. 
  • Simile
  • Ramo, for instance, brought us news about Captain Orlov. “In the morning when he crawls out of his tent he sits on a rock and combs until the beard shines like a cormorant’s wing.”
  • Simile/Metaphor
  • “I remember the day the Aleut ship came to our island. At first it seemed like a small shell afloat on the sea. Then it grew larger and was a gull with folded wings.”
  • Metaphor
  • “I went back to the cove after I gave the alarm,” he said. “When I got there I could see the ship clearly.”
  • “Matasaip’s face was like stone. He was not listening. I cried out once more, but my voice was lost in the howling wind.”
  • Simile
  • Personification
  • “Would the four winds blow in from the four directions of the world and smother me as I made the weapons? Or would the earth tremble, as many said, and bury me beneath its falling rocks? Or, as others said, would the sea rise over the island in a terrible flood?”
