Spiritual practice brought to America by German immigrants. In Germany it was known as braucherei. Much of it is based on a grimoire called Pow Wows; A Long Lost Friend written in 1820. Practice is primarily used for healing and spiritual protection. Also uses hex signs, which are round symbols use to give their work power. I've been practicing for years. Let me know if you have any questions.
I've been practicing pow-wow for about five years now. I also do Appalachian and Ozark healing. It's a little bit different in that, for the most part, it's a Christian practice. It uses the Bible as well as other grimoires. Some of the grimoires are: Pow-Wows; the long lost friend, Egyptian Secrets of Albertus Magnus, and Romanus-B?chlein.
