“Menominee Seventh Grader Suspended for Saying “I Love You” in her Native Language.”
This was a recent article published in the Native News Network, an online media outlet for Native Americans to connect.
In Shawano, Wisconsin, Miranda Washinawatok, a seventh grader who is part of the Menominee Native American Tribe was suspended for speaking her native language in class.
Miranda speaks two languages: Menominee and English and she is also on the school basketball team. Miranda was told that she was suspended from a basketball game because her coach heard from two of her teachers that her attitude has been very poor and she shouldn’t be allowed to play.
Miranda’s mother believed that her daughter was a highly respectful individual so her mother fought until she got answers from the coaches, teachers, and principal of the school.
