We would like to particularly invite self-identified witches and those who identify as practicing pagan witchcraft to share your thoughts on the role decolonization plays in these practices.
Some questions for consideration are:
- Are pagan witchcraft, wicca, heathenry, or eclectic neo-pagan beliefs consistent with movements of decolonization?
- How are modern witchcraft practices related to decolonized reconstruction of ancestral lifeways?
- How are issues of cultural appropriation, spiritual materialism, and objectification of fantasy (fluffy) stereotypes reconciled within groups of practicing pagans?
- How can pagan witches, heathens, practices of wicca, and other neo-pagan movements in colonized lands become safer to Indigenous people and communities?
Please limit submissions to 1000 words or less. Send submissions to decolonizebizi [at] riseup.net. Selected works will be published on Awakening the Horse People blog. Many thanks.
