American Witchcraft

I am an American. I am a Witch. Althoug my ancestry is in England, Scotland, Ireland, India, and beyond, I now live and practice in Texas, where I servce as a rootworker, spiritual candle minister, and psychic consultant to people from all over the world.

American Traditions are as proud and as strong as those of any other country. Right here, right now, the traditions of witchcraft and conjure in America go back hundreds of years.

This website is about American Witchcraft, also known as witchcraft, conjure, hoodoo, hexenkraft, and a whole host of culturally specific terms.

Magic was done as early as the 1700s in the Appalachian Mountains and Ozarks Mountains by those of Scottish and Irish heritage, and is commonly called Appalachian granny magic, kitchen witchery, hedge witch craft, or Ozark folk magic.

Magic was done since the time of slavery in the south from North Carolina to Texas by those of African heritage. These practices are more commonly known as hoodoo, conjure, and rootwork.

Magic was done in the 17th and 18th centuries in Pennsylvania by the Pennsylvanian Dutch, German settlers, and is still practiced today, where it is known as powwow magic, braucherei, or hexenkraft.

Magic was done by fisherman of Sicilian and Portugese heritage along our sea coasts, particularly in California, Louisiana, New York, New Jersey, and Massachusetts. This is known as stregheria, or witchcraft.

Brujeria and curandismo are American traditions of witchcraft and curing of Spanish colonial heritage in the South West and West.

Scandinavian Folk Magic, called trolldom, arrived in Minnesota and Wisconsin from Sweden, Norway, and other Scandinavian countries.

Chinese, Japanese, and South Asian folk magic, with roots in Taoism, Buddhist, and Hinduism, are available throughout our country.

Native American practices and influences have been here all along, and never left.

This website is here to serve those who are interested in learning more about American Witchcraft.

If you have felt that the only form of witchcraft available was European, and wanted something more true to your place of birth, then you have found the resource you are looking for.

On these pages we will discuss:

American witchcraft, conjure, rootwork, and American magical practices of this century and those past.

Herbs, roots, and curios native to America, used by Americans -- African, Caucasian, Asian, and Native.

Actual magical practices in their authentic states, not watered down by interpretation.

The tools, altar spaces, and sacred places of American Witches.

No matter where we come from, we are Americans. And this is American Magick.

Hoodoo is a form of predominantly African-American folk magic, unlike Voodoo, which is an African religion. Hoodoo, also known as conjure, rootwork, and tricking, is a down home, old-style form of folk-magic practice that developed in Southern states like Georgia, Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky, Virginia, Louisiana, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas, and Missouri from the joining of a number of separate cultures and magical paths. Hoodoo primarily consists of African and Native American herbalism and sorcery, into which has been incorporated elements of wisdom and spell-casting from Scottish, Irish, English, Jewish, and European traditions of witchcraft, granny-magic, shamanism, kitchen-witchery, enchantment, and occult grimoires. Regional synonyms for hoodoo include conjuration, conjure, witchcraft, or rootwork.
