Unfortunately, there aren’t consistent themes, because Americans don’t really have consistent themes. We might have days when we sit about and tell American folk-tales and “tall-tale” stories, but most Americans only identify as Americans if there is national crisis. Otherwise, they identify by state (Texans, etc.), and so, to have a more local, place-specific identity in terms of practice is a more useful approach.
Deities in Colorado would be different than in Louisiana (not a lot of Swamp Gods out here in the Rocky Mountains). Our hope with an American paganism is that a place-specific consciousness would be born, and through skillful relationship building, a more present, true-to-life polytheist practice can arise.
One part that we’ve found valuable in connecting to a place-centric American paganism is exploring what right-relationship looks like to the First Nations folk… as they are in many of our individual, ancestral stories. This practice is growing, and constantly developing in our Outdwellers Ministries.
