Advocate dies

Paul Schultz, an advocate for Native Americans, tribal elder and faith healer in the White Earth band of the Anishinaabe (Chippewa) tribe in Minnesota, died March 19.

Schultz, 66, headed the National Indian Lutheran Board in the 1980s (part of the Lutheran Council in the USA), which helped strengthen the church's social ministry response to the needs of Native Americans.

He also was director of the Bay Area Native American Ministry, an ecumenical agency in Oakland, Calif.
