- Im not proud to say that its the first time i read that name!

Romuva is a modern reinstitution of the traditional ethnic religion of the Baltic peoples, reviving the ancient religious practices of the Lithuanians before their Christianization in 1387. Romuva claims to continue living Baltic pagan traditions which survived in folklore and customs.[1][2][3] Romuva is a polytheistic pagan faith which asserts the sanctity of nature and ancestor worship. Practising the Romuva faith is seen by many adherents as a form of cultural pride, along with celebrating traditional forms of art, retelling Baltic folklore, practising traditional holidays, playing traditional Baltic music, singing traditional dainas or hymns and songs as well as ecological activism and stewarding sacred places.[4] The community was organized and led by krivių krivaitis (high priest) Jonas Trinkūnas until his death in 2014. He was buried according to the old Baltic traditions.[5] His wife Inija Trinkūnienė was chosen as the new krivė (high priest) and her ordination was held on May 31, 2015 in Vilnius on the Gediminas Hill. She is the first woman to become krivė in the long pagan history.

Romuva primarily exists in Lithuania but there are also congregations of adherents in Australia, Canada, the United States,[7] and England.[8][9][10] There are also Romuvans in Norway, for whom a formal congregation is being organized.[11] There are believers of Baltic pagan faiths in other nations, including Dievturība in Latvia.[12] According to the 2001 census, there were 1,270 people of Baltic faith in Lithuania.[13] That number jumped to 5,118 in the 2011 census.
