Fourteen members of Bowdoin’s men’s lacrosse team have been found guilty of “cultural appropriation” for dressing as Native Americans at an off-campus Thanksgiving party and are about to be punished, short of suspension or expulsion, by the college (“Bowdoin to discipline 14 lacrosse players for dressing as Native Americans,” Dec. 10).

I say: Boot all of the players out, along with their coaches and the athletic director. After all, their “cultural appropriation” of the sport of lacrosse itself, a game invented by Native Americans, is a much more serious matter than a few faux feathers and beads.
