Welcome to the online home of the Tribe of the Oak Druid Order, founded on Samhain, 2014. The Tribe of Oak Order is a Celtic Reconstructionist Druid order that seeks to preserve and pass on the traditional ways of the ancient Celts


This group is by application only, please request to join us only if you are seriously seeking to be a member and are prepared to study towards Druidic initiation. Most take at least three years to finish the course and there is considerable reading.

We are an on-line study group with members across the globe. We also meet in person for Grove meetings and seasonal rites, mostly in Western Massachusetts. The current Archdruid for the Order is Melangell Green.  Our Archdruid Emerita is Ellen Evert Hopman, author and Druid Priestess for many years.

We are the “People of the Oak”. Oak trees are sacred to all cultures across the European continent and sacred to all cultures that these magnificent trees dwell in.

We have gathered together here to help connect our thoughts and our ideas on what the ancestors may have believed and how they may have worshiped. We discuss the books we are reading and share resources, rites, and the ideas and inspirations of our collective Grove energy.

We are a Celtic Reconstructionist Druid Order which means we base our study and practice on ancient Celtic traditions and readings. The work starts with an extensive reading list (you may have read a number of the books already) and then progresses to one-on-one study with your foster. Most people take about three years to finish. There are hands-on, non-literary tasks, tools to make, and seasonal projects in addition to the basic reading.

 Once the work is done there is initiation, and then you pick a major focus and pledge to master and teach for the rest of your life.
