Legend of the Bluebonnet

The Legend of the Bluebonnet

There is a serious drought affecting the people of Comanche tribe. So a little girl named She-Who-Is-Alone, desperate to help in any way possible, sacrifices her beloved doll, her only connection to the family she has lost. The Great Spirits accept her sacrifice and return end the drought and cover the land in bluebonnets.

Visual Element: Lines. Throughout the story, we see the use of lines to in a way set a serious tone to the story. We see them in the tepees, the totem poles, and in the end, the rain.

Evaluation Criteria: Setting. To me the setting plays a huge role in the story because it revolves around a drought in what their land.
