Pagan Traditions

The term "pagan" originally meant "rural," but has taken on a life of its own over centuries of encounters with Christian Empire. Our Pagan Traditions section includes earth-based traditions, traditions that honor the ancestors, and polytheistic traditions from around the world, even though the people included here may or may not identify as Pagan as a proper term. We recognize that the label is at once imperfect and also overlaps in significant ways with our Indigenous traditions section.
