As announced yesterday, J.K. Rowling is revealing The History of Magic in North America, a series of four short pieces written the creator of Harry Potter for Pottermore, setting the stage for the upcoming Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them film.
The first of these pieces, "Fourteenth Century – Seventeenth Century," is now live on the Pottermore website. The piece discusses the early days of North American magic, including magic among the Native Americans, skin-walkers, and wandless magic.
Rowling has also revealed the titles and synopses for the remaining three piece (via EW):
Seventeenth Century and Beyond

Being a witch or wizard in North America is even more dangerous than in Europe. This account, which includes the real histories of the Salem witch trials and the Scourers (a rogue band of magical mercenaries), explains why.
Debuting March 10 at 9 a.m. EST
In the 18th century, the laws governing secrecy for the wizarding community became even stricter after a major violation that resulted in humiliation for the Magical Congress of the United States of America, the U.S. version of the Ministry of Magic.
1920s Wizarding America
Debuting March 11 at 9 a.m. EST
Ollivanders might have a corner on the wand market across the pond, but the American makers of the finest wizarding implements were Wolfe, Jonker, Quintana, and Beauvais. This is their story.
Each new piece debuts at 9 a.m. ET on Pottermore.
