Do you know which American Indian tribe lives in your neighborhood? Waldorf and I live near the Ohlone people and Miwok tribes.
We learned from them the importance of the feathered headdress. It is very special, worn only during ceremonies, festivities, and important occasions. Every tribe has many different kinds of headdresses.
Each feather is said to have been earned by an act of courage, strength, or honor. Binding them together into a headdress displays everything a person has done for their tribe.
After learning so much about these beautiful traditions, Waldorf and I know that we need to be very respectful towards this symbol. It is not a toy we can play with.
Can you think of any sports teams that should be more respectful towards Native American traditions?
