*Teutonic refers to Northern European Pre-Christian people and is sometimes used interchangeably with words like Asatru, Norse-Paganism, Heathenism.
We prefer the term Teutonic just as the European cousin tribe calls itself Celtic.

Joseph Campbell's Ten Commandments for Reading Mythology

1. Read myths with the eyes of wonder: the myths transparent to their universal meaning, their meaning transparent to its mysterious source.

2. Read myths in the present tense: Eternity is now.

3. Read myths in the first person plural: the Gods and Goddesses of ancient mythology still live within you.

4. Any myth worth its salt exerts a powerful magnetism. Notice the images and stories that you are drawn to and repelled by. Investigate the field of associated images and stories.

5. Look for patterns; don't get lost in the details. What is needed is not more specialized scholarship, but more interdisciplinary vision. Make connections; break old patterns of parochial thought.

6. Resacralize the secular: even a dollar bill reveals the imprint of Eternity.

7. If God is everywhere, then myths can be generated anywhere, anytime, by anything. Don't let your Romantic aversion to science blind you to the Buddha in the computer chip.

8. Know your tribe! Myths never arise in a vacuum; they are the connective tissue of the social body which enjoys synergistic relations with dreams (private myths) and rituals (the enactment of myth).

9. Expand your horizons! Any mythology worth remembering will be global in scope. The earth is our home and humankind is our family.

10. Read between the lines! Literalism kills; imagination quickens.

The Song of Horsa's Galley
By Robert E. Howard

From the Baltic Sea our galleys sweep
to South and West and East,
We bring our bows from the Northern snows
that the great grey wolves may feast.
To the outmost roads of the plunging sea
Our dragon ships are hurled,
We have broken the chains of the Southern Danes
And now we break the world.

Out of the dark of the misty north
We come like shapes of gloam
To harry again the Southland men
And trample the arms of Rome.

The ravens circle above our prows
And our chant is the song of the sea.
They hear our oars by a thousand shores
And they know that the North is free.

Aunty Alfta's Adventures In Northern Cooking
Lefse is great to use as a kind of Norse sandwich called lefse kling. It is much like a Northern version of a taco or burrito.
Basically you take some filling and spoon it out onto the lefse then take the lefse and wrap it around the filling and enjoy! I
do this with Vinnish meatballs all the time, as well as with scrambled eggs, sausage and cheddar or American cheese. One
of Aunty Alfta's favorite kinds of lefse kling is chicken and cheddar lefse kling.
3 or 4 whole chicken breasts
1 t. - salt
1 t. - pepper
1 small onion diced
1 small green pepper diced
1/2 c. cheddar cheese
Slice the chicken breasts into small chunks. Place chicken, salt, pepper, onions, and green peppers in a pot and cover with a
lid and cook slowly over low heat until they are thoroughly cooked. Once cooked put chicken mixture into a serving bowl
and add cheddar, stirring thoroughly until the cheese is well mixed in and melted. Spoon a generous amount onto lefse and
wrap. Enjoy! You can vary the salt, pepper and cheddar to taste if you like.
With 12 lefse, serves about 4.
