The Hanged Man: Which area of witchcraft are you least familiar with?
I don’t know much about hexing or cursing or binding, beyond what you hear about in pop culture. I also don’t know much about Bruja or Santeria workings and that kind of thing. I would love to learn more about it. I don’t think I would try to work it myself because I wouldn’t feel right about it because it’s not my heritage and I don’t want to be appropriative of something that doesn’t belong to me. But I think there are definitely things I could learn from witches of color.
I think the best way to do that learning to find other practitioners who you respect and listen to what they’re saying. I’m not advocating stealing or adopting their practices en masse, but building awareness of the diversity in witchcraft only helps us. The workings of my sister witches have so much to teach me and I’m always thankful to learn from others, just as I hope that my practice can help other people too.
Also if you’re a witchy person of color and you’ve got a blog where you talk about your practice I would love to read it, share your links in the comments!
