ACLU, Native groups target Polson's regalia rules

With Polson High School graduation less than a week away, three groups are calling on the district to change its rules on tribal regalia at the ceremony. Native students — about a third of seniors at Polson High this year — often celebrate graduation by wearing beaded mortarboards, eagle feathers, ribbon dresses and other traditional regalia at the ceremony. A 2017 Montana law protects their right to do so — but Polson School District policy requires students to get approval beforehand.
