Louisiana school reverses ban on Native Americans wearing eagle feathers at graduation

 


JENNINGS, La. — The school board in Jefferson Davis Parish has changed its mind after initially refusing to allow Native American students to wear eagle feathers as part of their graduation garb.

The board originally had ruled that the feathers would violate graduation dress code. However, it told seniors at Elton High School on Thursday that each Native American could wear an eagle feather or an acceptable alternative, the American Press reported.
