We are the first coven of the Rainbow Warrior Tradition. We got our start in 1997 when two of our High Priests, Pan and Druimaelduin, began holding “open by invitation” Sabbats after Pan decided to leave the group with whom he had been studying. Though they didn’t realize it at the time, they were laying the foundation for what would later become the Rainbow Warrior Tradition. In 1999, Nathair and Pan did some healing work for another individual; seeing how well the two worked together, Pan and Druimaelduin began incorporating Nathair into their rituals. Shortly after this, the group expanded to include another fledgling witch who chose the magickal name Aengus. The foursome continued working together presenting Sabbats and Esbats to the local community. Based on the fruitfulness of their combined efforts, the group decided that it was finally time to formally recognize themselves as a coven. They slowly began using the name Rainbow Warriors and on June 21, 2001 performed a birthing ritual for the coven and set the intention that one day the ways of the Rainbow Warriors would be followed as a Tradition.
