Pukwudgie was one of the four houses at Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in North America.[2] It was named so by No-Maj 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 was sometimes considered to represent the heart of a witch or wizard. It was also said that Pukwudgie favoured healers.[3]

History

In 1926, Pukwudgie received 378 House points, the second highest of the four houses, and won the Quidditch Cup and The Gobstone Goblet.[4]
