Odinism is a white supremacy movement whose members claim to worship Odin. The movement began in the late 1960s in the United States and in the early 1970s in England. In the US, Else Christensen founded the Odinic Fellowship and published her racialist views in her magazine The Odinist. In England, John “Hoskuld” Gibbs-Bailey and John “Stubba” Yeowell founded The Committee for the Restoration of the Odinic Rite (also called The Odinist Committee, later called The Odinic Rite). Most notably, Yeowell was a member of the British Union of Fascists and National Socialists in his teenage years.
Heathenry claims no ties to Odinism, and Heathens denounce white supremacy, Nazism, and racism.
