Daughter of Okla. governor under fire again

 OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ 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.
