In this 1996 file photo, members of the Native American Church prepare for a prayer meeting in Mirando City, Texas. The Native American Church of North America has settled a lawsuit in late Jan. 2018, against the Transportation Security Administration, leading to more training for agents on how to screen religious items. The training will happen at airports that church members typically use to travel. (Joyce Marshall/Star-Telegram via AP, File)
