Fined for Wearing Eagle Feather
Poarch Creek Band teen fined $1000 for wearing eagle feather at graduation
POOF founding member Annette Haven of Florida sent us a link from Indian Country Today. School officials blocked a SW Alabama Native American lady from her high school graduation and then fined her $1000. Of course, from the perspective of contemporary educators, they want uniformity at a graduation to symbolize the mediocrity of their students’ education. However, a $1000 fine for a teenager seems very excessive and of questionable legality.
This young lady needs your moral support.
