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?

I am Irish & Cherokee heritage my mom always told me when I was little, but we were always listed as white when someone asked our race. But I am proud of who I am. I am Irish Cherokee & I want my children & grandchildren to know that& to be proud of it too. Yes I understand their problem my had been because of the father, but she didn't have to have hurt an eagle in order to have it she could had found it where the eagle had lost it normally. And I don't see that is a reason to fine her for that. Let her be who she is.

When an eagle dies it is sent to a facility that investigates it's death and the cause, then the feathers are conserved and natives and only natives can apply to receive one or more of these feathers. Very likely this is where that feather came from. I believe natives can also apply for a permit to gather feathers lost naturally.

Margaret Tinsley Rodgers

How do they have the legal authority to do that ? Stuupid and ridiculous

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
