   Prisoner case - Prisoner civil rights. In suit by prisoner alleging 
   requirement that he participate in a chemical-dependency programs 
   available at MCF-Faribualt conflicted with his Native American religious 
   faith, he failed to specify his Native American faith (of which there are 
   many), his beliefs consistent with that faith, or how the prison program 
   conflicts with his Native American beliefs, whatever they may be; without 
   that information prison officials were without notice of the basis for 
   plaintiff's allegations that he was denied the right to freely exercise 
   his religion and without enough information to respond adequately to the 
   allegations in his complaint; the complaint failed, therefore, the state a 
   claim upon which relief could be granted, and the district court properly 
   granted judgment for defendants.
