Girls basketball team proudly wears Navajo hairstyle during game


A girls basketball team in Arizona sailed to another victory on Friday, proudly wearing their Navajo hairstyle on the court and inspiring players across the nation to do the same.

The Flagstaff Lady Eagles defeated Coconino High School by a score of 64 to 56. But the greater win was cultural -- players on both teams, as well as many spectators, wore the traditional "tsiiyeeł" hairstyle that drew controversy a few days earlier when the girls were forced to remove their hair ties and buns.
