Dear KitchenWitch and Arabi, Since you both are French decendants I am hoping you could help me. There is a question I have about Cajun witchcraft. I am a french decendant. Cajun French to be exact. My family came from France and Belgium, to Nova Scotia, then to south Louisiana. Is there such a thing as a cajun witch? All I can find is information about the traiteur or wiccan covens in Louisiana. Also, is there anything different about French witchcraft compaired to other cultures?

KitchenWitch will probably know a bit more about the Cajun trads. I am a mix of French, French Canadian and Creole lines; which oddly enough intersect in my family tree, LOL...go figure:)
As to the difference of French witchcraft yes there are many different ways that are foreign to the other trad paths. Speaking for myself only, it is a double edge sword. Our ways are passed down through oral tradition and are shrouded in complete secrecy (my family anyways). Which was the entire point of this thread incidentally. We only know of what our family has passed on to us and are just as curious about the other French Trads to see if there are similarities and certain customs. Again speaking only on behalf of my family, there seems to be no commonality with the Italian Stregha or British Trads, etc, etc. Will try to think of specific examples that I can share though:D. It's late and I am getting sleepy. My brain turns into a pumpkin in 3 minutes, LOL.

Somewhere, however far or near, there is something very dark and grim hurtling toward each one of us. We just don't know when it will hit. Then, quite suddenly, it won't be all right at all.

My mother is Canadian French, from where her family originates in France I don't know. I do know that when I was in the Alps many years ago I felt something there that was different than any other place I've been. It was freedom and spirituality. I guess what I'm saying is that I'd like information on it as well.

Family is important to me. While I don't have the genetic heritage that my mother does, she is my mother and her family is my family. So I guess my focus would be on Canadian French practices from the Quebec area.

It takes true arrogance to try and force ones' religion on another.

Dear Arabie, Somehow I missed this response. Sorry it has taken me so long to see it. That did help me to understand why I cannot find the information I was looking for.
Thank you,
Rebie

I'm glad you're in China, Fin... perhaps it will absorb some of the alcohol out of your brain so you don't continue to make asinine posts like this one.

Sandra, indeed. :vomit:
