Branos Carnutodrûidon (Raven of the Carnutes Druid). He is a Galatis focused on Galatibessus (Gaulish Customs) and a Druid of many years. He is the Uatis (One who Sees) and the Auetos (The Protector) of Galatîs Litauiâs a Gaulish Organization that promotes the greater community, a founding member of Bessus Nouiogalation a Gaulish Tradition. A member of many Druid Orders, which are OBOD, NOD, BDO, DOGD, AODA, DONA, and the Yew order, to name a few. He is finishing Celebrancy school, and also working at becoming a priest in the Gnostic Church.
Creator of the Uelîturunâs, a Gaulish and Druid divination system with more divination systems in the works. He runs the Gaulish Polytheism, Carnutian Nemeton, and The Nemeton websites, where he talks about Gaul and Druidry, among many other things. He leads in bringing back the Bardos, Uatis, and Druits of Gaul within The Drunemeton, a soon-to-be Gaulish Druid Order. An artisan in the skills of blacksmithing, woodworker, and also a musician. You can find his work at the Carnutian Workshop.
I have studied the different Realms of Druidry and that of the Senodruides (Ancient Druids) for 20 or so years. I have found my way as a member of the Grand Grove of Ancient Order of Druids in America (AODA), which I help to admin their Discord server. Within that tradition, I'm working toward Priesthood in the Gnostic Celtic Church. I also am studying with River Jones to become a Funeral Celebrant. I do not call myself a Druid but a Uatis (Augeror, Seer). Im also a Stoic and an Alchemist who studies Ornithology and many different philosophies.
I have been a practicing Galatis for around 8 years. In those years, a couple of folks and I formed Bessus Nouiogalation (BNG), a Gaulish tradition. I was the spiritual leader (The Ueletos) of Touta Galation for a couple years. I left that and created Galatîs Litauiâs and invited others to help in its formation. (Which is still being formed) thanks to you all.
My approach is a little different than others as it is not that of Revival or Reconstructionism but rather that which I call Reconectionism. Now I don't dismiss the others; it's just not my outcome. I'm a reconstructionist in my research, a revivalist in my approach, and a reconnectionist in what I craft.
My focus is that of the Paleolithic to the late Bronze age, but truly all that leads up to what we call Gaul, So I do a lot of looking at European History at a time before the PIE migration into Europe.
As my name suggests, I look at myself and my symbolic approach towards reconnecting to Gaul as a Raven of the Senodruides (Ancient Druides). As I look back at them, I can't determine what they truly are doing as I sit in the trees watching from above. But I can make out bits and pieces and fly to other places to piece together the shiny things to try and create a form of what they did in today's world, and that's where Drunemeton comes in. Brining the mysteries from the otherworld into this world.
My profession is a Blacksmith/Crafter living in the Mountains of Western North Carolina with my wife, a Multifaceted Holistic Healer, and our Daughter, who is also a crafter. We tend to Nature a lot by doing volunteer work for our community.
