Correllian Nativist Tradition, also known as Correllian Wicca,

Blvd Orphies Caroline High Correll 1890's as Frune e

is a Wiccan tradition which was created by Orpheis Caroline High CorrellCarolin High Correll, an American practicing psychic, spiritual healer, and herbalist, in the early 20th century. She claimed descent from interracial relationships between Cherokee Didanvwisgi (medicine men) and Scottish traditional witches who were allegedly influenced by Aradian witchcraft and the Spiritualist Church; launching the tradition at what is now known as Correll Mother Temple in Danville, Illinois on September 4, 1879, she would head the church until her death in 1940.

While not known internally as a "Wiccan" tradition until the 1990s (Orpheis Caroline initially called it a "Nativist" tradition, but the tradition would become increasingly affiliated with the Wiccan current in the 1970s under its third first priestess, LaVeda High-Correll), it adopted the trend toward eclecticism and universalism which would later typify most of the early Wiccan traditions.
