KFYR North Dakota's House Education Committee heard testimony today on a bill that would allow Native Americans to wear tribal regalia at school sanctioned events.

It would stop schools from imposing a dress code, allowing the students to wear the gear or any culturally significant object.

Some schools in the state are not allowing students to wear their eagle feathers during graduation ceremonies.

In Monday's discussion, several amendments were suggested to clarify what type of activity it would be allowed at, and the specific type of clothing or accessory allowed.

The committee did not make a decision.
