History

Pukwudgie was one of the four houses at Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in North America. It was named so by No-Maj James Steward, after the Pukwudgie, a fiercely independent magical creature, based on stories he heard from his wife Isolt Sayre about William the Pukwudgie.
Pukwudgie House was sometimes considered to represent the heart of a witch or wizard. It was also said that Pukwudgie favoured healers.

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