American folk magic comes in all shapes and sizes and is found in every region of the U.S. - Appalachian folk magic is part of that melting pot of superstitions, energy, and spiritual will. Created as our ancestors moved to the United States, their various folk magic practices intertwined and sometimes mixed with each other and the practices of Native Americans and oftentimes that of enslaved people as well.
