Paleopaganism

PaleoPaganism is a subdivision of Paganism put forth by the modern Druid scholar Isaac Bonewits. According to Bonewits, PaleoPaganism describes any native cultural polytheistic or animist traditions including those were, or still are practiced by native Africans, Americans, Australians and Asians. According to this definition, Hinduism, Taoism and Shinto are all PaleoPagan religions because they are rooted in ancient indiginous tradition and remain relatively unpolluted by foreign influence.
