what was zitkala sa idea regarding short shingled hair  ?

Dear Student,

Zitkala-Sa had heard from her mother that only unskilled warriors, who were captured, had their hair
shingled by the enemy. Among their people, short hair was worn by mourners and shingled hair by
cowards. Since she was neither she was dead against cutting of her long hair.
