For a lot more information on Pow-Wow click here to go to our “On-Line Books” section where there is a complete book that describes this tradition. This book is actually a grimoire in the “Pow-wow” tradition of the Pennsylvania Dutch. In spite of the name, Pow-wow is not a Native American tradition, but a rural European healing and hexing system which was imported into America in the 18th and 19th Century by German immigrants. After nearly dying out completely it has, as we mentioned above, experienced a small revival in recent years.
