The Druid Alliance of North America, originally named the Druid Order of North America, was founded in 2019 to connect people who live in North America following the druid path in its many forms, foster groves, promote communication and the exchange of ideas, and to educate those who have an interest in Druidry. We do not teach a specific path of druid practices but recognize that there are many paths and teachings that make up modern druid practices. It is for the individual to determine which path is right for them.
Members of DANA are varied. There are Judeo-Christian druids, pagan druids, and atheist druids. There are those that see Druidry as a philosophy of life, as a religion, as a method of spiritual growth and development, or a combination of these. We find common ground in our love and respect of nature, in our beliefs and our way of life. A DANA Grove may be dedicated to a specific teaching or practice, but will still allow druids of differing beliefs to attend their functions.
DANA is a safe space for those who practice Druidry. There is no discrimination allowed in DANA. That means that you are welcome and accepted regardless of race, gender, age, disabilities, country of origin or any other condition. As long as you reside in Canada, the United States, Mexico, or any of their outlying territories, and you follow or are interested in the druidic teachings and practices, you are welcome! This is your place to discuss your beliefs, learn from others if you choose to, and meet people who share your interest of Druidry.
In 2022 we shifted focus and leadership, restructuring DANA with the aim of a Great Hall for the different Druid, Bards, and Ovates from the many other Orders/Groups/Solos to gather to discuss, learn, and help illuminate those new or unsure about Druidry or Druidism in its many forms.
DANA will not act like the other groups/orders as those have much to teach, and there is no reason for another group like those. Instead, we will help Guide.
