Some questions for all the supporters.
This is a private Christian school, why is a teenager’s wishes being held higher than the rules that the school set forth?
Why did the feather have to be ON the cap, as that was what was actually opposed to?
Explain to me how a feather that was at one time only given to warriors and Chiefs has cultural relevance at the high school graduation of a teenage girl?
By the way, good luck as a member of the tribe couldn’t do it.
The truth is, and down vote me all you want, many tribes take their customs and histories from the writings of early white settlers. I’m not saying that it’s the fault of these people that their ancestors tried to reclaim a heritage that was forced away from them. But I am saying that it might be time to stop giving special treatment to anyone who yells “heritage” any time they’re told that they can’t do something. Because the truth of the matter is that there is no cultural reason for a teenager to have a bald eagle feather. And to all the people who say that the rituals and customs have been “adapted” to modern time, guess what? You can’t change a custom and then claim that you do it because it’s your culture. It’s just some shit that you made up and are asking everyone to accept.
Before you down vote me as I know you will, do me a favor. Actually answer those questions I asked.
