Welcome to Hyndla's Shrine

Honoring the Lady of the Family Tree

Welcome to the online shrine of Hyndla, the Nordic goddess of genealogy, bloodlines, and family trees. Watcher of the Ancestors, she lives in a faraway frozen cave and walks the red roads from parent to child to grandchild, and knows the secrets of genetics. This shrine is dedicated to her, since few know of her, and her name ought to be more well known. Hail to the Blood-Hound Goddess!

First, I do not practice any form of Native American spirituality. My practice is derived from my understanding of ancient northern Eurasian practices. Second, I am not now, nor have I ever been, a member of any Asatru or Heathen group. I do not identify as Asatru or Heathen. I am a northern-tradition Pagan, which is a religious tradition that is reconstructionist-derived, rather than a reconstructionist religious tradition such as Asatru and/or Heathenry. The views espoused in these pages may or may not reflect the views of most Asatru and/or Heathen people or religious groups. They are derived from the personal gnosis of myself and other people whom I trust and respect. I do not claim that they are provable by academic sources, nor that they are anything other than what I say they are. Read at your own risk.
