New Age Frauds & Plastic Shamans or NAFPS is an activist group of Native people and our supporters. We investigate and seek to warn the public about impostors and exploiters posing as Native medicine people or elders.
Do you think you are “Indian at heart” or were an Indian in a past life? Do you admire native ways and want to incorporate them into your life and do your own version of a sweat lodge or a vision quest? Have you seen ads, books, and websites that offer to train you to be come a shaman in an easy number of steps, a few days on the weekend, or for a fee?
