You all about wanting to make a deep and meaningful connection with someone who shares a like-mindedness and routed in their Native American heritage.
Whatever credit you give the story, the idea of feeling through your hair has merit.
Many Native Americans believe their hair is a physical manifestation of the growth of the spirit, and some say it allows for extrasensory perception, and connection to all things.
