  1. so they could make him like the white men because a natives hair is very important to him and by them cutting it off show that they are in charge and he needs to leave his native life behind

  2. the young boys hair was cut of because his father wanted him to convert to Christianity because his father believed that long hair was a sin and he thought having his sons hair cut of would help god for give his son for his sin witch were not really sin at all.

  3. His hair was cut because his father wanted him to make peace with the whites even if it meant taking away traditions .

  4. I don’t remember watching the vid, but I can make the general assumption that this decision to cut off his hair was to help him assimilate into the white culture.
