Forn Sidr of America

Bindrune

Dear friends and newcomers, Heathen and non-Heathen alike…

It is time for us to begin something new.

American Norse Paganism has progressed and evolved into a beautiful faith over the years. With this progression has grown a need for a community that represents the North American Heathen identity and upholds spaces that are safe for everyone. So far, this has only existed in isolated groups or online forums.

Until now.

We are proud to introduce Forn Sidr of America.

What is ‘Forn Sidr’ of America?

Forn Sidr (anglicized to forn seed-ur) of America is a new religious movement that brings a Universalist approach to Heathenry. Forn Sidr means ‘Ancient Custom’ in Old Norse and refers to all the spiritual customs of the Nordic people. These traditions are still practiced in Scandinavia, America, and around the world to this day.

Forn Sidr of America focuses on how our faith enriches our modern lives. Our goal is to cultivate a Heathen identity that celebrates all forms of living Norse Paganism, instead of concentrating on recreating the practices of ancient Scandinavian people from the Viking Age.

We need an accessible faith community that is open to anyone who wishes to connect, learn, and grow their spiritual practice. We need a community that accurately represents the diverse identities in America. We need a community that doesn’t just accept People of Color and LGBTQIA+ , but seeks to represent and empower minorities through cultivating awareness and action. Forn Sidr of America’s top priority is to create safe, supportive, and socially proactive spaces where we can celebrate each other and our faith.

American Heathenry should be open and available for all who seek it.

If you stand with our communities of color
