Troth Kindred Program

The Troth Kindred Program (TKP) exists to provide local and regional representation of The Troth.
 
Requirements and Responsibilities:
  • It is a requirement that three-fifths of the membership of an applying kindred are active Full members (minimum of one year) of The Troth. For example, if your kindred has ten members, then six (three-fifths) of those members must be Full members of The Troth.
  • TKP kindreds must hold at least one Troth-sponsored public event annually.
Benefits:
  • The Troth assists KAP kindreds with advice and financing of the required public event.
  • KAP kindreds can hear oaths on behalf of The Troth as an organization.
  • In addition to individual Troth members' votes, KAP kindreds each have one vote in Troth elections.

The Heathen Freehold Society of British Columbia (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.

As of 2013, the Heathen Freehold Society of British Columbia is an affiliated Kindred of The Troth http://www.thetroth.org/
