Decks Created by Black, Indigenous, and/or other People of Color


Recommended Posts

We already have a list for decks that feature diversity (you can find it here), but I feel that we should have a list that highlights all the fantastic decks that are made by black, indigenous, people of color. All types of decks are welcome here, we can separate the list into Tarot, Oracle, Lenormand, Cartomancy. Please help us create this valuable resource! 

 

UPDATE: Following discussions amongst the staff regarding some of the suggestions, we have decided to highlight work here by creators who fall under the BIPOC definition and also the BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) definition which is commonly used in the UK.

The Hoodoo Tarot is still on my wish list!!

 

@Raggydoll I remember of the Ghetto Tarot (people spoke about it on AT years ago); hoping there isn't controversy with this one though (cultural appropriation, I'm not sure)

I checked and the creator is a white woman from Belgium so it won't be included in this list. We will only include decks by black, indigenous, people of color 🖤 If the deck is not featured in the big list of diverse decks then we could add it there.

Asian is relevant here, isn't it? There's Benebel's deck.

The Osho Zen might fit here too. I think Osho is from India?

Hand of the North, by Neil Graham, born and bred in the Yukon - technically Caucasian, but totally Yukon. I think it counts...

VERY unobtainable, but still.

 

This is all I can find on line about him:

There are threads on AT, but no images. So here are two from my database.

It is - but I have to say I'm not 100% certain it should count.

Lovely, but I don't think so. I'm third generation made in Africa but am still definitely a white-boy. Great thread, btw. Yknow, when I signed up to twitter last year sometime I was rather surprised to learn that there are a hell of a lot of black peeps into tarot. I mean, that's not surprising in and of itself, but they're not well represented as far as the prominent tarosphere is concerned. Mama Whodun being an exception, I suppose.

 

Edit: I posted this before I saw Raggy's reply.

Yes, of course!

Using my Google-fu I found the Black Rebirth Major Arcana Tarot Deck by Yolanda Acree (https://www.makeplayingcards.com/sell/marketplace/black-rebirth-major-arcana-tarot-deck.html)

Sorry but I have to disagree on the osho zen Tarot 

osho is indian, yes but the book and the cards are not from him but from a white american womanso it doesn’t fit i think 

This deck was inspired by his talks and books but he was never part of the creation process as far as I know

Yikes, thanks. 

I don't own the deck and always just assumed it was his.
