Sacred Harvest Festival 2015
Monday August 3rd - Sunday August 9th
Our eighteenth year is about change. We are moving to Northern Minnesota under a bright star lit sky. SHF is built and made magic by our festivants each year, and we have the chance to redefine our priorities and path forward. Drum and dance until late, create enriching rituals, and bask in our famous tribal community. Our theme, "Tribal Evolution" delares we are ready to listen and welcome new hands and hearts to a new home. The future unfolds before us, will you be a part of it?
Sacred Harvest Festival has welcomed well over a thousand unique individuals who have made our tribe flourish. Pagans and nature worshipers and their children and elders come together once again for a week of joy, fellowship, and learning.
We are your People, ... Join Us !
.... discover Atchingtan, the NEW Tribal Home you will love!

Nordic roots artist, educator, and völva.
Kari Tauring will be both offering workshops and a performance.
She expresses her ethnic heritage through traditional and original music, story telling, runes and dance. Her performances and workshops tell the stories, traditions, and spiritual roots of Nordic people from ancient times through the Immigrant Era.
Volva Stav is a contemporary expression of this deep root. Her music is vocal-centric with ancient languages looped through modern technology creating a fabric of sound that stirs the soul. Kari brings deep knowledge and artistry to her presentations with the humor of one whose people helped shape the cultures of Minnesota and Wisconsin.

The Bourgeouis Bohemians
These Gals have been knocking about under direction of Lesley Inman, they define themselves as 'an eclectic gathering of belly dance enthusiasts'. They like to explain it as 'American Belly Dance' because like America, the styles and elements of dance that they draw from include all kinds of cultures, flavors, and time periods. From Old Hollywood, to Gothic Opera, to Balkan Circus, to Bollywood, to Victorian Industrial and Tribal Fusion. These ladies have one goal every time; ENTERTAINMENT!!
