"I've worked so hard the past four years, and I've worked hard to get good grades in school," Liseanne Yazzie told KJRH.
Yazzie, an Oklahoma high school senior, was originally told by school officials that she couldn't wear her Navajo moccasins to her graduation ceremony.
Yazzie attends Sapulpa High School, which has a strict graduation dress code that requires students to wear dress shoes.
