In a previous article, we talked about the relationship that was just starting to be established between the Yggdrasil Ásatrú Association of Costa Rica and the Åsatrufellesskapet Bifrost of Norway. The visit of their Bifrost's former leader, Stine Helen Skår, and her associate, Hans Gunnar Pedersen, was a highly anticipated event for the Heathen community of the Central American nation.
Latin American Ásatrú has grown a lot in recent years. Countries like Costa Rica have been on the radar of the worldwide Ásatrú movement on multiple occasions. The Central American country has been represented mainly by the Irminsul Kindred and most recently by the Ásatrú Yggdrasil Association (AYA), founded in 2015 as an umbrella organization for individual practitioners and smaller groups seeking legal recognition.
