Heathen Traditions Banner for Krampuslauf Philadelphia

It's not cut to the right size yet, but here is the HAH patch (granted, it's an iron-on since I am not that crafty) that will be added to the Heathen Traditions banner for Krampuslauf Philadelphia.

We're still accepting patches for this year's event up until this Saturday (the preparation day), and we'll also happily accept patches that can be added throughout the year and displayed at Krampuslauf Philadelphia next year.

This event serves as an opportunity to present the diversity of Heathenry to the wider public in a positive and community-affirming setting. 

Please see the Pennsylvania Heathens blog for more information!

Heathen Community World-wide (Facebook)

For Facebook users: Heathen Community World-wide is a great FB group that embraces the totality of positive Heathenry and, in my opinion, really projects Heathen values in a way that benefits the community. "Where the rubber meets the road," if you will.

Benefit for the Victims of the Kansas City Shooting

This is a worthy cause! 

This relates to the April 13 murders at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City (see the related HAH post from 04/15/14), and we are glad to see the Heathen community coming together in an expression of generosity and compassion. This effort is also a statement of the rejection of the agenda of hate. 

We once again hail the victims of this tragedy:

Terri LaManno
William Lewis Corporon
Reat Griffin Underwood

hi! First, thank you for the generous donations we've received already from the Troth and Troth members! Would you be willing to post this link and message from me on your page? It's for a good cause and I appreciate it!


Hi everyone! I wanna start by thanking you all for all the support we’ve received for this effort so far. I know things have been quiet for a while, but we have 10 days left for the final push, and we’re close to our goal! I wanted to update everyone on what’s going on with the fund, as well.

I’ve spoken to the director of philanthropy at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City, and they’ve already set up a permanent fund in memory of Cross’s victims. I’ve been assured the use of the funds is in line with the wishes of the families, and that’s where our donation is going to go. I’ve made sure they know who we are and why we’re donating, and the families are happy to accept.

So here we are, with 10 days left. I’m asking everyone to help up with a last social media blitz- even if you’ve already donated, please spread the word everywhere you can, and ask your friends and acquaintances to share it too! Let’s show the world what a force for good we can be! The ancient heathens valued community and generosity- let’s make them proud!

Response to the Overland Park, KS, Accused Shooter's Religion

News media outlets are reporting that the accused shooter in Overland Park was an adherent of Odinism

We abhor the appropriation of any Heathen identity for racist and bigoted agendas. We reject e the abuse of our religion as a justification for hateful and abominable actions. We condemn the violence and hatred that are at the root of this story.

Let us all hail the victims and remember their names:

Terri LaManno
William Lewis Corporon
Reat Griffin Underwood

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families and friends of the victims of this unconscionable act.

Othala Rune

There is a strange rumor circulating around Facebook that reads something like this:

"Apparently the Elder Futhark has one too many Runes according to Heathens Against Hate and The American Asatru Association. These groups have organized their members to complain to Facebook about this Rune and as a result FB has deleted all images of the Othala Rune from the Women of Asatru page. No one in either of these groups is a coreligionist of mine."

Just for the record, Heathens Against Hate has done no such thing. In fact, HAH has worked to make all of the runes MORE available to everyone, including incarcerated Heathens or to Heathens in mental health facilities, etc. 

While we cannot presume to speak for the American Asatru Association (AAA), we have been in contact with its manager and administrator, who ensure HAH that the AAA has also engaged in no such action.

Let's be clear:

Anything that states that HAH has any opinion to the contrary is a falsehood, and the agenda of those who propagate such absurdities should be examined.

Thank you.

The HAH Team
