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.
