What is the Freehold?
The Heathen Freehold Society of B.C. (formerly the Asatru Freehold) was founded in Vancouver, B.C., Canada, during the spring of 2002. Since then, the Freehold has grown to include members from all over the province.
Our greatest purpose is to assist in the contemporary revival of the elder culture and religion of the ancient Germanic, Teutonic and Nordic tribes.
We are also dedicated to studying the many varieties of Germanic Heathenism which have arisen all over the world in the last half century, including Asatru, Odinism, Theodism, Forn Sed, and others, and teaching what we learn to interested others.
The Freehold is a confederation of independent Heathen individuals, households, kindreds and tribes who have united around this historic purpose.
Having recently incorporated as a non-profit society, the Heathen Freehold Society is pioneering where no Canadian Heathen have gone before.
Official membership is $20.00 Canadian per person per year. Full membership grants you a vote and the opportunity to run for office, but while it is encouraged, it is not required.
