No Feathers in Your Cap!

-
(KFOR)  Native American seniors at Oklahoma's Seminole High School say they are planning to wear eagle feathers on their graduation caps on Thursday night as a symbol of pride and tradition.

However, school officials say that would violate graduation ceremony guidelines that were conveyed to them in early May.

Kaden Tiger earned an eagle feather as an outstanding citizen of the Seminole Nation.

He has already tied it to his mortarboard, along with tribal beads.

"I wasn't going to go by the rules anyway because it's my right," he said.  "The accomplishment of completing high school is pretty big for me.  That eagle feather represents what I've accomplished."
