We Are Pagans of Color
This is a blog for and by Pagans of Color.

We are different people, from different Pagan traditions, with different experience levels, and from different ethnic backgrounds. Together, we form a strong community with a great deal of valuable knowledge and perspectives.

In our experience, we’ve found that having a safe space within the Tumblr Pagan community is essential. The recent controversy surrounding the mere idea of a Pagans of Color blog has made it clear to us that this space is necessary. It is a place we are welcome, comfortable, and free. We can write about our traditions and our experiences among people who understand and relate. We can celebrate our heritage and our practices.

However, while this blog is a place for People of Color, it is not “exclusive”: anyone can follow, ask questions, reblog, and engage. We encourage (polite) questions - if you want to know about or have a question that concerns Pagans of Color, please ask Pagans of Color. Don’t ask other people. Ask us.

Please feel free to submit content that would be appropriate for this blog. If we feel it’s a good fit, we will post it. But in this space, we have the power to decide.

We look forward to engaging with all of you in a spirit of openness and learning.

here-lies-andalusia asked : Hey, I'm organizing a spiritual protest/ritual space/healing kind of gathering for POC and QPOC in the pdx area around what's happening in Ferguson (as well as Palestine et al), could you please publish this ask as a resource for people to reach out? Thank you :)

Quick disclaimer:

Please contact here-lies-andalusia about this, not us. ^^  Not saying there’s not support from us here, but we still get the occasional message about that Witches show that another blog is running.  I just want to make it clear Pangs of Color is not running/organizing/etc., this.

Anonymous asked : Same Hellenix atheist anon! How would y characterize worship of beings like la Santa Muerte? Would you say it's pagan or something else? None of family is Christian or theist, but my mother is the only practitioner of any sorts. She worships, you guessed it, the saint but not God, Jesus, Mary or other saints nor angels etc. it's strictly la Santa Muerte. I wasn't raised worshiping her so I am curious how others would view this.

Depends on the context.

Some hold her to be the Angel of Death, others hold her to be a goddess masked, others hold her to be a title of Mary like any other, others hold her to be a saint and have a whole “she died under these circumstances” narrative.

So it depends on what YOUR cosmology/narrative is for La Santa Muerte, which depends on where in Latin America you are from and/or where you first introduced to her and/or under what context.

BUT IN GENERAL, most who venerate La Santa Muerte definitely hold, at the very least, a Christian identity, and commonly hold a Catholic identity, if we look at her veneration internationally.

She is a folk saint, it’s not ~pagan~ as it is understood in the United States.

Anonymous asked : I am an atheist. I am drawn to and briefly practiced Hellenic paganism due to a strong childhood impression of the gods. I often wonder does it say something when I do not have such a string interest in the gods of my heritage (MezoAmerican)? I know a bit about other pantheons of gods, and Buddhism but MezoAmerican gods hold little interest to me. I honestly like the Hellenic gods but is problematic to not take an interest in th others?

I think it just means you have an interest in those gods.  I’m Honduran but I have no interest in worshipping the Mayan deities.  It’s just how life works out sometimes.  You don’t have to be interested in your heritage and disinterest doesn’t make you less MezoAmerican or bad or anything.
