The epilogue recounts the appeal of Zellers v. Huff to the New Mexico’s supreme court. It also reflects on the legacy of sister-taught schooling litigation, in New Mexico and across the country. In particular it considers how fights over the Catholic habit can inform the study of other controversies surrounding religious garb (or religious clothing) in the twenty-first century, particularly those that involve the Islamic veil.
