The principal of John F. Kennedy High School is in hot waters after making comments consistent with conspiracy theories in which he said native Americans were invited and “scalped” during one of the early Thanksgiving Day feasts.
The Record, a Woodland Park based newspaper, transcribed the following announcement made by Amod Field, the principal of JFK High School, a day before the Thanksgiving recess, “We must very, very, very, very understanding to our Native Americans, who lost and sacrificed because of the scalping that took place on Thanksgiving. They were invited to a dinner, and then their lives were taken from them.”
Mr Field says he made an announcement, but he did not say anything about scalping. And that the audio recording of his announcement was manipulated.
