I've been meaning to post here for quite some time. Today's the day!
Some basics: I'm Dakota. I'm twenty-one, I live on Canada's Prairies. Regina, Saskatchewan, to be precise.
I identify as an 'eclectic pagan' as an umbrella term for simplicity's sake, but I most often refer to myself as a Goddess worshiper and a Cree Traditionalist. I sometimes identify as a 'witch', as well. I'm Plains Cree First Nations (Cree Indian) and I've been raised around my people's spirituality all my life (with bits of Roman Catholicism strewn about). I'm very comfortable on my current path, but I have a great interest in other paths as well.
I'm a long-time activist for environmental, Indigenous/human rights and animal welfare. I was blessed with my parent's activist spirit, but I'm much more vocal about my causes than they are now. I'm two-spirited (Queer), a vegan, a full-time third year university student aiming for a double major in Indigenous Studies and Gender Studies. I also work in a bookstore and I acquire more books a month than anyone I know. I have more books than I have furniture! My family is very important to me, and I have a wonderful partner of three years who I currently reside with. I'm very introverted, but this doesn't always come out on my journal.
My spirituality is very important to me, though I admit I do not write about it in my LJ very much but I hope to change this. I'm looking for new friends (there's a lack of pagan folk on my f-list!) that are socially conscious, open-minded, silly and potentially another pen-pall.
My journal can go from very serious to absolutely ridiculous, so a sense of humour is very necessary. I'm also admittedly a geek. Fandoms don't take up a huge portion of my journal (except maybe Harry Potter as the new movie is coming soon), but they are there!
If you have any other questions, feel free to ask. I also have an intro entry in my journal that you may want to take a look at. If you'd also like to know a bit more about my path, I wrote about it a bit HERE
Thanks for reading!
