Mohawk Hair Styles For Asian Men Biography
A kindergarten child has been suspended from an Ohio school for wearing a mohawk haircut to class. School officials say that the mohawk is a distraction and is against school grooming and dress codes (and keep in mind that this was the child's third offence), while the mother of the child says that there is nothing in the school guidelines that prohibit it:

"I understand they have a dress code. I understand he has a uniform. But this is total discrimination," she said. "They can't tell me how I can cut his hair."

Rather than request a hearing to appeal the suspension, Barile said she'll enroll him at another school. Changing the hairstyle is not an option, she said.

"It's something that he really likes," Barile said. "When people hear Mohawk, they think it's long, it's spiked, it's crazy looking, and it's really not."
Saying that this child's haircut would be a distraction to other students is a crock. That doesn't fly. Saying that this child's haircut goes against school grooming and dress codes is also a crock. School officials are towing this line because they don't want their students to look abnormal...and no matter what anyone says, a 4 1/2 year old with a mohawk is abnormal.

The mother though, she's another story. What she is doing with her son is nothing short of abuse. I can hardly imagine using a little boy as cannon fodder for my battles. This child doesn't know what's going on, but his egotistical mom has decided that instead of showing her son that he should respect authority, she is showing him that even though there are rules, he doesn't have to abide by them if he doesn't want to.

If this woman has decided that this is so important an issue, she could request a hearing and try to change school policy through the various legal avenues. Instead, she is taking her son out of the school, disrupting his education, affecting his social acceptance and emotional state. Bra.Vo.

But little Timmy likes his mohawk...sure, but he also likes to eat spoonfuls of sugar.
While the mohawk hairstyle takes its name from the people of the Mohawk nation, an indigenous people of North America who originally inhabited the Mohawk Valley in upstate New York,[1] the association comes from Hollywood and more specifically from the popular 1939 movie, Drums Along the Mohawk starring Henry Fonda.


The Mohawk and the rest of the Iroquois confederacy (Seneca, Cayuga, Onondaga, Tuscarora and Oneida) in fact wore a square of hair on the back of the crown of the head. The Mohawk did not shave their heads when creating this square of hair, but rather pulled the hair out, small tufts at a time. The following is a first-hand account of James Smith, who was captured during the French and Indian war and adopted into the Mohawk tribe: "...[A] number of Indians collected about me and one of them began to pull hair out of my head. He had some ashes on a piece of bark in which he frequently dipped his fingers in order to take a firmer hold, and so he went on as if he had been plucking a turkey, until he had all the hair clean out of my head, except a small spot about three or four inches square on my crown the remaining hair was cut and three braids formed which were decorated...".

In defiance to the mass scalpings the Mohawks used this hairstyle as a symbolic gesture of open rebellion, this has a taunting effect on those who choose to hunt down and scalp the Mohawks for war or pay.

Therefore a true hairstyle of the Mohawks was one of plucked-out hair, leaving a three-inch square of hair on the back crown of the head with three short braids of hair decorated. The three braids of a True Mohawk hairstyle are represented today on traditional headdresses of the Mohawk known as a "Gustoweh". Mohawk Gustoweh's have three upright eagle feathers that represent the three braids of long ago. Example of Gustowehs. When not decorated, the very short braids were allowed to hang loose as seen in Good Peter's image in the above-linked article.
