Analytical Paragraph
"We are like cats...who scratch if you step on their tails.' But I was only a kitten and my claws were still small." (pg 74)

"At home we slept 2 and 3 in a bed for animal warmth and a feeling of security." (pg 76)

"I myself was growing from a kitten to an undersized cat." (pg 76)

"The pigs sure worked him over." (pg 77)

In "Civilize Them With a Stick" by Mary Crow Dog and Richard Erdoes, Mary Crow Dog is hinting that the Native Americans were treated as animals by the white nuns in her school, even though they were more animalistic themselves. Crow Dog exemplifies this through the quote, "The pig sure worked him over." By saying this Crow Dog is comparing the white nun to a pig based on the fact that she was beating one of the Native American children, providing a negative connotation towards the white American. Later on, Crow Dog relates herself to an animal when she states, "I myself was growing from a kitten into an undersized cat" (pg 76). Contrary to the comparison of the white person and a pig, Crow Dog is relating herself to a powerful cat, aquiring a more positive connotation. There is a pathos created within these quotes, because the audience can relate on a more metaphorical level by understanding how an animal works and therefore understanding the relationship between a white person and a Native American within the given time, sympathisizing with Crow Dog and how hard it must have been to be in her situation.
