PIIPA seeks volunteer: can you help?

Public Interest Intellectual Property Advisors, Inc. (PIIPA) is seeking assistance from a suitably-qualified volunteer to assist a Colombian Indian Shaman-healer from the Putumayo region of the Amazon in Colombia. According to PIIPA,
"In the 1970s-1980s, a U.S. university anthropologist recorded the sacred healing music of the assistance seeker. Assistance seeker's sacred music is currently being sold without his permission as CD recordings via the internet. The assistance seeker speaks Spanish, and, perhaps, English. The assistance seeker is affiliated with a nonprofit organization, and the subject matter advances the public interest in traditional knowledge and culture".
Further details are available from the PIIPA website here
