Troth Kindred Program

The Troth Kindred Program (TKP) exists to provide local and regional representation of The Troth.

TKP kindreds are sovereign entities with control over their own events and policies. To maintain Troth Affiliation, TKP kindred policies cannot conflict with The Troth's Inclusion Statement. The Troth is not responsible for the internal matters, conflicts, or decisions of our TKP kindreds.

As a reference, The Troth’s Inclusion Statement reads as follows: I stand with The Troth against any use of Germanic religion and culture to advance causes of racism, sexism, homophobia, white supremacy, ableism, or any other form of prejudice. 

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.
  • The Troth assists TKP kindreds with advice and financing of the required public event.
  • TKP kindreds can hear oaths on behalf of The Troth as an organization.
