Bones WDA

Bone throwing, or reading the bones is an ancient form of divination practiced by many cultures all over the world in many fashions. Bones from various species (or sometimes just a single species as is common in American Hoodoo) along with shells, roots, stones, or small objects and charms are tossed onto a mat or a circle drawn on the ground and divination is then completed by examining how the pieces fell in relation to one another. So, who is going to teach us the fine art of Bone Reading and how can you learn?

Garth Tardy was born and raised in Northern Maine and has Masters degrees in Slavic Literature and Linguistics and in Library Science. He currently works as a librarian at the University of Missouri Kansas City where he’s the “Special Formats Cataloger, specializing in sound recordings.
