Welcome to the Frith Moot page
The 2016 Southwest Frith Moot will be held at the YWCA lodge in beautiful Tijeras, NM from June 24 – June 26. This will be our 7th annual SFM and the Third one held in NM. We are hoping to once again make this an incredible heathen community building event for the general southwest and surrounding regions.
This is an open event for anyone from anywhere that wishes to attend (not just the southwest) and geared towards Asatru or Heathen folks in our community and those that would like to learn more about being Heathen.
There will be many individual heathens and independent kindreds in attendance. We hope to see members of the national organizations, like the Asatru Alliance, the Troth and Asatru Folk Assembly. This is a free event to attend and is not being financially sponsored by any national organization. This event is being hosted by the Wanderer Kindred of Arizona and the Mountain Haven Kindred of New Mexico for the purpose of building a better regional heathen community.
So here is the low down:
As this is a community event, those attending should sign up for a work shift during the camp out. Pitching in keeps the event running smoothly and comfortable for everyone. This is also a good Frith building exercise that will help you get to know your fellow Heathens. Everyone needs to pitch in to keep the site clean and trash under control. We are looking for specific sets of skills and willingness for first aid, set up and tear down, and children’s activities.
This years event will be held from 10:00 am June 24th through 5:00 pm June 26th, 2015 (that is Friday, Saturday and Sunday). The Frith Moot site is at the YWCA lodge in beautiful Tijeras, NM which is a short distance east of Albuquerque right off the I-40. There is a main lodge with a large fireplace and a dining area. Inside the lodge are men’s and women’s bathrooms, each with a shower. Outside the lodge is another outhouse style bathroom. There is plenty of space for tent camping. There are a few electrical hook-ups available for low voltage use (no RV’s). The site is well maintained by the YWCA Middle Rio Grande Please keep in touch through our Facebook event page as we will be periodically posting camping tips & reminders.

If you have anything you would like to give a presentation on or host a discussion about please let us know ASAP so we can schedule it.
If you are planning to attend would you please go to the Registration portion of this website and fill out the signup page and submit it. The information will be kept confidential and removed after the event. It is only by us to make this as welcoming an event as we can. The more we know about how many adults and kids we have, the better we can plan seminars and games. Also this information is very important for meeting special needs of folks in the community that have allergies or health issues that might need to be addressed in case of accident or emergency. We like to be prepared.
