A Rosebud Lakota couple is suing a school in northern Nebraska after a secretary at the school allegedly cut their daughters' hair without permission from the two Native mothers, according to a lawsuit filed Monday.

The ACLU of Nebraska filed the lawsuit on behalf of Alice Johnson and Norma LeRoy before the U.S. District Court for the District of Nebraska. The lawsuit alleges Marvanne Logterman, an elementary administrative assistant at Cody-Kilgore Unified Schools, cut the hair of the couple's 6-year-old and 10-year-old daughters.

Logterman did so after allegedly finding lice in the girls' hair.
