Who says the song is only to honor Native American students? What about all the graduates? It is about education! What about the faculty, admin, teachers, parents....all who help the graduates get to where they are?!?!? Why is it seen like such a seperation????

Casey Hutmacher---are you joking me? "Our language" what?!?!?! English is absolutely not ours. We have stolen 90% of our words from other languages. Google it, fella. You ever eat a taco? That's not your word. Neither is CIVIL---for many reasons, but one of them being it comes from latin. Which I am sure you don't know because education doesn't seem to be your thing either. They feathering ceremony is a seperate ceremony just for Native students. Are the white students invited? Honored? DO they show up? The honoring song is for ALL---which should include you on the school board....but I hope that is a position you won't hold long as you don't deserve the honoring.
