This article reports about setting a trial date on the American Indian inmates and the state of Nebraska by a Federal judge in the United States. The trial date would be set provided they fail to work out an agreement regarding the inmate's cultural and religious practices. In the proposed settlement agreement, prison officials agree to allow the inmates to have two powwows, a ceremony among the North-American Indians to conjure the cure of disease, success in war, etc., marked by feasting, dancing etc., a year and to give them time for religious education and ceremonies.
