To fine ANYONE for showing pride in their native American heritage is a crime and also a gross insult to the US Constitution!! The school board should publicly apologize to this lovely girl, immediately remove any fine, and hang their heads in abject shame!!! They seem to forget to whom America belonged before the voracious and greedy rape of the land by outsiders!!!

What the hell is wrong with the world? This is so stupid it is almost beyond belief. After all, they are the true indigenous population of that country, she is courteous enough to remember and celebrate that, how could that possibly offend anyone?

This is all Obamas doing he is antagonizing the Natives.Now it wasn't bad enough to say the native children have to have Obama-care because they donot hold trible ID cards .He doesn't care that they are full blood Pocumtuc or Cherokee he just wants to create havic within the American Indian Community . Great way to lose the ones who voted for the son-of-a-bitch

People have to have ID cards to live!? Who is Obama to decide it?

Clearly the school board isn't using the time they are being paid for in productive ways - maybe they need to be replaced.

My mother said: If the student was a Christian and would have worn a cross around her neck during graduation, she's sure it would have been okay! ...

And by the way: It really annoys me that the school has messed up this special day for which she had been waiting for so long.

I feel the same way - it was her special day and she was proud of a couple of things, no doubt - heritage and graduating - and the school ruined it.... shame on that school system.

While I don't have a problem with her heritage or her traditions, but because eagles are protected, last I heard, it was against the law to possess an eagle feather, which is probably why she was fined. That would have nothing to do with school policy.

Not illegal for native Americans as long as they get them through legal means. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eagle_feather_law

Where is the freedom of expression in America??? This was very wrong and the school should say they are sorry.
