The daughter of the governor of Oklahoma is once again defending herself over something she wore.

Mary Fallin's daughter Christina Fallin says in a statement posted to her band's Facebook page that a shawl she wore with the word sheep written across the back at a weekend concert was not meant to be offensive to Native Americans.

Fallin came under fire last month when she posted a photo on social media sites wearing a Native American headdress with the words "appropriate culturation."

The most recent incident came after Fallin's band posted on its Facebook page that they heard the band was going to wear "full regalia" during a performance at the Norman Music Festival.

Native Americans protested at the event. Festival organizers have also denounced the performance.
