Tribal leader denied access to U.S. Supreme Court hearing

A tribal leader of the Yakama Nation in Washington state was not allowed access to a U.S. Supreme Court hearing on Tuesday that involved the tribe, because he refused to remove his traditional headdress.

According to KomoNews, Yakama Nation chairman JoDe Goudy was told he could access the Supreme Court if he removed the headdress. In a Facebook Live video shot during the incident, a guard explains to the chairman that the headdress might influence the court.
