This continuing overlap requires anthropologists to remain mindful that we are building relationships and conversations with our fieldwork communities, rather than extracting data from passive subjects, and that their perspectives are as important as our own, even, perhaps especially, when they are in conflict. Keep in mind that anyone can view public collections—they may also appear in recommendations and other places. Like the magic Witches work, the word Witch itself is a process: changed by, but also changing, the world.

Because the label of witchcraft has been used to demonize colonized people and their practices, Witchcraft was approached as a deeply inappropriate term for religions belonging to BIPOC communities, especially Yoruba-inspired traditions such as Vodou, Candomble, and Santeria, and Indigenous traditions like curandera. Gardner coordinated with Egyptologist Margaret Murray to present his initiatory magical tradition as evidence for the organized, European witch-cult that she had hypothesized could have survived the cultural genocide of early modern Christian persecutions. As Western ethnographers spread out across the globe trying to make sense of the practices of other people, they unconsciously carried with them ethnocentric assumptions about magic and religion.com, the Sell on Etsy app, and the Etsy app, as well as the electricity that powers Etsy’s global offices and employees working remotely from home in the US. The witch seems to have a few good spells thrown on to her list, but ultimately nothing really catches my eye that would greatly help make my idea for my witch great. The words facilitate separating out participants from the everyday world together and make collaborative magical work possible. When discussing witch-hunting stereotypes and victims of those stereotypes, I do not capitalize witch or pagan, because the accused do not self-identify with those terms.

It has defined and used a distinction between religion and magic in the service of colonial assumptions, but it has also served as a repository of practical examples for contemporary magic-using communities in the West, from the nineteenth century through the present. Both communities—academic and Pagan—need to reassess cultural and academic anxieties over using the term Witchcraft for postcolonial religions and practitioners of those religions when, and only when, practitioners use the word for themselves. These witch bells are wonderfully crafted, a little bit smaller than I thought they might be, but are exactly as pictured. Not only is it a matter of empirical fact that there are BIPOC individuals who identify as Witches and who understand their ancestral traditions as forms of Witchcraft religions, but the shift is also political.

Etsy’s 100% renewable electricity commitment includes the electricity used by the data centers that host Etsy. She argued that those persecuted as witches were not vicious, satanic heretics, but instead salt of the earth practitioners of the Old Religion. Personalised advertising may be considered a “sale” or “sharing” of information under California and other state privacy laws, and you may have a right to opt out. A predominantly white, Western movement, contemporary Paganism is a product of, a backlash against, and a popular audience for, anthropological ideas about magic. In colonial settlement contexts, such as South America and the Caribbean, oppressed communities of color, often enslaved or formerly enslaved, including those of African, Indigenous, and mestiza descent, continued to develop worship and protective practices that were derided as magical by ruling authorities.
