Pennsylvania Dutch (Magical practice)

Pennsylvania Dutch refers to German immigrants to the United States who settled in Pennsylvania. "Dutch" here refers to Deutsch, or German, rather than Dutch in the usual sense of The Netherlands. The community is known for a rich tradition of folk magic, which has roots in German grimoire traditions that were brought to the US by immigrants.
