Amanda “Lokisdottir” is a queer Autistic hereditary witch with roots in the Northern Tradition and First Nations spirituality. They call upon the Vanir and Aesir in their work, and feel a deep affinity for Freyja, the Norse goddess of seiðr sorcery, sex, war, and death; and Loki, the genderfluid trickster. Their passion and expertise is in runes and spellcrafting. The women in their family have been witches for as far back as they can trace. Their great-grandmother passed down to them Amanda’s first tarot deck, and their great-aunt was a druid who danced naked in the woods. One of their earliest childhood memories is of an aunt clutching their hand fiercely and telling them they shared fae blood.
