Ernesto Alvarado, an Apache from Coahuila, Mexico, with 30 years of experience as an educator in the Colorado school system, will conduct the workshops.
Alvarado is a featured medicine man in the book "Shamanic Wisdomkeepers" and is a trained herbal practitioner. His biography states that he is recognized as a medicine man by California Piyute, Colorado Apache and Lakota bands in the U.S. and all bands in Mexico. He is an initiated medicine man by Rapid City Lakota and ceremonial leader in France, Switzerland, Australia, Venezuela, Mexico and the United Kingdom.
In short, this article sounds suspicious to me. Either the "shaman" or the writer was sloppy with the facts--maybe both.
