Navajo Kindergartner Sent Home from School, Ordered to Cut His Hair

On Monday, a 5-year-old Native American boy was sent home on his first day of school and ordered to cut his hair short because it allegedly violated district policy, the boy’s mother said.
The child, Malachi Wilson, an enrolled citizen of the Navajo Nation, had been looking forward to his first day of kindergarten at F.J. Young Elementary in Seminole, Texas.

THIS IS TERRIFYING AND HORRIBLE

to navajos cutting your hair is losing your knowledge..this is some boarding school shit

this is fucking terrible I want to fucking cry, hair is so fucking important. This crosses the line in so many different ways on so many different levels, just thinking about how this probably happens to people all the time makes me so sick.
