Native American student not allowed to wear moccasins at graduation


WALDORF, Md. - For her high school graduation ceremony this week, Dylan McCabe planned to honor her Native American heritage by walking across the stage in a ceremonial dress under her graduation gown and wearing moccasins on her feet.

"I want to have that connection to my Navajo side as I walk across that stage," she told FOX 5.

She said she didn't think it would be a problem, but considering her Charles County high school has a graduation dress code, she decided to check with her principal.
