Schools

Indian Outlaw

|

Malachi Wilson walked into F.J. Young Elementary School in Texas ready for his first day of kindergarten. But officials sent him home because his hair was too long. His mother explained that he was a Navajo and their religion calls for them to have long hair. But only after she provided documentation that he is an official member of the Navajo Nation, did they relent and allow him to return to school without cutting his hair.
