I'm Naia Ōkami, a twenty-eight year old wolf from the southern wasteland of Brunswick, Georgia. I am known mainly for the phrase "On all levels except physical, I am a wolf" which has unfortunately become an internet meme. I've been in the therianthropy and otherkin communities for over eighteen years, and I've been in the furry fandom even longer. I first came to participate in the community by joining the now-defunct WereNet, and I founded Kinmunity (as Wulf Howl) in 2011.

Awakening Experience
I began to discover my wolf when I was around 10 or 11 years old. My understanding of myself as a wolf came first, a year or so before I found the community. After watching the anime series "Wolf's Rain" at the recommendation of my friend at the time, I gained a fascination and fixation with wolves. I researched what I could about wolves, their behavior, etc. and began feeling as though I was "a wolf in a human body". I was unsure what to do with this feeling or what it meant, but somehow the concept of wolf and the concept of self were similar, and I felt in some way, possibly quite illogically, that I was indeed wolf somehow. A friend of mine who used to be in the community (known as wolfrider, they created the "Dream Shift" graphical chat) led me through some trans-formative meditation as a wolf, which caused me to experience intense phantom shifts.

Having no concept of "therian" or "were", after talking to the friend who recommended I watch Wolf's Rain, I joined the Furry Fandom. I participated in the online parts of the Fandom for a couple of years, and then one of my furry friends mentioned the concept of weres and showed me the (now-defunct) Werenet. I was grilled harshly and treated pretty badly there, so I left and joined Werelist, where I found good company. I founded Wulf Howl (later known as Kinmunity) in 2011. In 2012, I interacted with real wolves for the first time, and after that I had no further doubts of my identity.

In 2014, after an encounter with a Silver Fox, after much meditation, I discovered my fox.
