Celtic Heathen Federation

Family and Tradition Forever

Leadership in the Federation

Leadership in the Federation is broken down like this.


A Council of Arch Druids sets base information.  The Virtues are Declared.  Simple Rules to be added to and altered by the Council of Arch Druids, that will be made public in the future.  No Laws will be changed until after they are made public.  These Virtues were decided by the Druids and Celtic Heathens that were here at the beginnings of this Federation.

Each Kindred Runs itself, building on that base information.  

This will give Each Kindred a place to start, each one building on these.  Meaning the following.


Each Kindred will have the 12 Virtues, the Laws of the Kindred, and the Seven Precepts of Merlin.  Then Each Kindred will vote upon and come up with By Laws, building upon what we have provided.  Each Kindred is going to be different.
