Wanted – Native American Medicine Man

We spend more time than we would probably like on FedBizOpps, but we didn’t catch this one ourselves. One of our readers with lots of time on his hands sent us this one. While to many, it will be a simple curiosity, ultimately, it goes to show the lengths that the US Government will go to to do the right thing and provide religious accommodation.

Federal Bureau of Prisons, FPC Duluth, Duluth, MN, is seeking a Native American Medicine Man to visit the facility four times a year and “conduct Native American ceremonies and provide instruction to inmates in the Native American Faith.
