Sacred Space Conference – Program Teaser: Diana Paxson – Ancestors, Appropriation and Affinity: In Search of a Pagan Identity

For over two centuries, American ancestors have worked to expand and apply our ideals and understand what they truly mean. We need to honor heroes from all the ethnic groups that built this land. How can we develop a relationship based on spiritual affinity without misappropriation? How can we work with all the ancestors to make our country a place of liberty and justice for all?
