On August 22, 1999, The New York Times published an article on how The Blair Witch Project continues the trend of negative bias against witches. Selena Fox, who helped found one of the oldest Wiccan nature preserves in the country, the Circle Sanctuary in Mt. Horeb, Wisconsin, considers it one long slur against witches: "If the film had been called 'The Blair Cherokee Project,' people would recognize the negative stereotypes."
