    Witch & Popcorn

      Reservation Dogs     A wonderful new indigenous comedy is making waves on Hulu. Starring such veteran actors as Zahn McClarnon and Gary Farmer, this refreshing show is about a group of Native American teens and their days and nights at home on their reservation in Oklahoma.

Here is a trailer for the show:     The magic of this film comes from the fact that it’s an…

    Book Review Anatomy of a Witch A Map to the Magical Body by Laura Tempest Zakroff Publisher: Llewellyn Publications 216 Pages Publication Date: June 8, 2021     The pagan community has a hunger right now for what is innovative and creative in its presentation. More importantly, we are in need of having voices that speak to the younger practitioners of the Craft and witches who will carry forward the groundwork laid by their Elders. To that end we also need authors and teachers who are adept at not dumbing down the teachings, nor make it a temporary fix for the bored and uninspired who are chasing the perceived glamour…
