Also, might there be other native people that DO wear bonnets/have arrows? Just because the symbol did not represent you, maybe it represents others. You seem to say that the symbol is unrepresentative of any group.
I think the story is good, but I'm not sure if it is diverse enough... (I'm stuck at my div. statement too)
