It was initially begun as a Wiki containing information on Wepwawet, the Opener of Ways, the Kemetic deity associated with possibility, new opportunities, doorways, pathways, and so forth. It was eventually decided that the Wiki be expanded to contain other information regarding other deities as well as the practices of Kemetic Orthodoxy. The Wiki retains its name in homage to Wepwawet, as information opens the way for understanding.

If you are gifted with the skill of fluently speaking more than one language, please consider helping to translate the Wiki into other languages. Currently, the Wiki is set up for: French, German, Spanish, and Portuguese. If you are capable of translating into any of these languages, do not hesitate to begin translating! We appreciate your help.
For those who can only speak one language - don't feel that you are left out! The English side of the Wiki needs work as well. Look at the Wanted Pages and Short Pages lists for articles needing more work.
