$40 for this festival!!!

Nice job, crapitalists. Take the indigenous faith of pre-Europe and turn it in to money. Please, please, please go take a REAL flying leap off the nearest cliff! And on the way down could you take your new-age hippie cultural imperialists fellow travellers who steal American Indian spiritually for profit right along with you?!

The real daoine sidhe know what you're doing. Beware the Furies of Justice.

For those who genuinely seek to be our allies in spiritual resistance to cultural appropriation, we recommend the following books as a good start:

THE FAIRY FAITH IN CELTIC COUNTRIES
AMERICAN ELVES
A LITTLE MATTER OF GENOCIDE

And while you're at it:

HONOR THE TREATIES!!!

Contrary to the judgemental jerk who posted and missed the point of the whole event, this years Faerieworlds was yet another magical production by Imaginosis, Brian Froud and friends.

The weekend included a magical memorial for Johnny Cunningham featuring Seamus Egan, Susan McKeown and more, as well as sets by Trillian Green, Rasputina and Woodland. There was an abundance of amazing art and crafts for sale, although the ritual and magic seemed to be the real point of the show. Can't wait for the next Faerieworlds!
