Open Letter to BC Witchcamp on Issues of Cultural Appropriation & Respect

September 6th Update:  Aja with Witch’s Union Hall has a first report back about cultural appropriation education at BC Witchcamp.  And at least BC Witchcamp has recognized the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh people exist on their website.  Additional feedback coming when more information is available.

August 6th Update: No response from BC Witchcamp organizers to the original letter.  A follow-up letter has been sent.

Follow the link to the original An Open Letter to the British Columbia Witchcamp on Issues of Cultural Appropriation & Respect.  See for yourself at: BC Witchcamp website.

Want to share support for this letter. Email: info@bcwitchcamp.ca

This letter has provoked further discussion (and hopefully action).  This open dialogue is being posted at Witches Union Hall.  Thankyou!

  1. I could not follow the link to your letter. I looked at the witchcamp website and did not see anything offensive. Can you send me a link to the location on the page that was appropriated? Thanks. Maybe they already responded to your letter?
