Finding an Asatru Kindred in the Las Vegas Area

It's time to revisit the topic of Asatru kindreds in my local area because the last time I posted about it was before the pandemic. I often get emails from people looking for a kindred to join in my local area, the Las Vegas valley. I received another such email recently and here is my reply:

"My kindred, American Celebration Kindred, is almost ready to accept new members but not quite. Our main ritual house had a pest control problem this winter and we're waiting until it's bug free to resume holding rituals and get-togethers. We've been closed to new members since the first Covid lockdowns started but are hoping to resume accepting new members soon. American Celebration Kindred does both Asatru and American holidays. If you're interested, I'll let you know when we're ready to meet new members.

There are several kindreds operating in the local area. Some are fairly easy to find as they are Renfaire guilds with heathen members that do historical type heathen rituals. They resumed meetings in the first year after lockdowns lifted and have public practices in public parks. I can direct you to them. You can also find them at the actual Renfaire here which is in October.

 There are other local heathen kindreds which you might be able to reach at a pubmoot, but we aren't quite up and running again with those yet. Our pubmoots stopped meeting for several years. We're trying to organize holding them again but it has not quite come off yet. Soon though, hopefully. I can direct you to the online group for that if you like.

In addition, there is my Asatru forum on Facebook, which you can find here: (Asatru Facebook Forum) Unfortunately Facebook has been throttling the group's post reach for a long time, resulting in a lower level of group activity. I do post news there about how to find me and other local heathens at public events, though. 

I'm going to be at our local area's next Pagan Pride Day which will be in November. It's a great place to network."

Here's the link to the post on the same topic that I posted in 2017:
