Pukwudgie was one of the four houses at Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in North America.[2] It was named so by Muggle James Steward, after the Pukwudgie, a fiercely independent magical creature[3], based on stories he heard from his wife Isolt Sayre about William the Pukwudgie.[1]

Pukwudgie house is sometimes considered to represent the heart of a witch or wizard. It is also said that Pukwudgie favours healers.[3]

Behind the scenes

  • The Pukwudgie is a creature that appears in the folklore of various indigenous peoples of North America, notably the Wampanoag.[4][5] It is typically described as two-to-three-feet tall and human-shaped, but with a larger nose, ears, and fingers and smooth, grey skin that sometimes glows.[4] Its magical abilities include disappearing and reappearing, partial or complete transformation into a porcupine or cougar, and creating fire.[4]
