2 thoughts on “Paganistan Weekly Aug.2-8th”
I became aware of this site from reading “The Wild Hunt” blog. It’s great to see all the information here about the many Pagan activies in the Minneapolis area.
I noticed, while reading thru the site, that you often use the popular local term “Paganistan” for your neck of the woods. I understand that no explanation for this usage is needed among the local community, but people from all over the county–or the world–can come here to see your site, and they do not necessarily have the context for this term.
It would make sense to see an explanation of “Paganistan” listed on the site and credit given to Steven Posch, the local elder who coined the term in the first place. Actually, if you are using professional journalism standards, an explanation for such a localized expression would be given in each article using it.

Thank you Mr. Rabbit,
The content of “Paganistan Weekly” (and Community Notes) is supplied under that name by Twin Cities Pagans who have granted permission to PNC-MN to use the content, specifically without credit. It is compiled and published as a community service under that name, and for unlimited distribution. A Google search presents information on the definition and origins of the word “Paganistan” for a national audience. Use in a “hard” news story is probably best accompanied with a reference link, as in blog tradition.
If you, or someone with authoritative knowledge on the origins and usage of “Paganistan” wish to write an article regarding it, PNC-Minnesota would be grateful. I first recollect it as applied to a camping area adjacent to “Babylon Heights” at Pagan Spirit Gathering 20 some years ago, but am not an authority.
