The Correllian Nativist Church International, Inc. is a Wiccan, Pagan and Metaphysical church that has many members and branches throughout the United States and in many locations around the world. The Correllian Nativist Church International, Inc. was founded for the purposes of promoting the spiritual development and growth of its members and to provide worship opportunities, education, and charitable services to the communities in which they operate.
The Correllian Nativist Tradition is based upon the teachings of members of the High-Correll family. The High-Correll family were descended from a line of Cherokee Didanvwisgi who intermarried with a line of Scottish Traditional Witches, whose descendants were further influenced by Aradian Witchcraft and by the Spiritualist Church. The founder of the Tradition is the blv. Orpheis Caroline High Correll. She is said to have founded the Tradition as an entity separate from her ancestry, on September 4, 1479 Pisces (1879 AD).
Correllianism places a strong emphasis on the philosophical aspects of Wicca, and on the spirituality and inner mysteries of the Wiccan religion, but liturgically their beliefs do not especially differ from those of other Wiccan Traditions. They believe it is their attitudes toward the Pagan community and its future that tend to set them apart. The Correllian Tradition is dedicated to the advancement of the Pagan people. They believe in the need for increased communication and co-operation between Pagans everywhere, from all Traditions.
They stress the importance of the Pagan Clergy as teachers and facilitators, and the need for a strong public presence. The Correllian Tradition emphasizes celebratory as well as initiatory Wicca, and is strongly committed to accessible public ritual. The Nativist Church have permanent temples for their ceremonies and activities.
