This is the offical blog for the Blue Moon Wolf Pack. We are located in Central Michigan, and have 16 active members. We are two years old and currently hold the title of largest pack in the northeast. Having fathered our first branch pack, Sacred Willow, we are proud to say they have 8 members and are coming along beautifully. We are a therian wolf pack, though we contain more then just wolves. Our current missions is to finish our documentary, Howl. Running this blog is our alpha male, Wolfie Bloodfur, who is the founder of our pack. His current projects include a few novels on therianthropy and a guide to pack formation. We hope you all enjoy your stay here on our page.Howl At Me~
villaarce asked: Sorry if I come up as ignorant, I've never heard of the "otherkin" movement before today. I've been looking through your blogs, specifically your photos, and I have some questions. What do you guys do on your "pack days"? Is this somehow related with the culture of "spirit animals", or any religion in particular? How did it all start? I mean, how did you identify yourself as what your are today?
Firstly, I’d like to address the difference between religion and spirituality, being that religion suggests we worship a deity or their is a philosphy or doctorine to follow. Otherkin (and it’s branch, therianthropy) are spiritual beliefs, not religions. There is no deity, no philosphy or doctorine, it’s a belief that one is connected, in the soul, to a specific animal, real or not. Some people, like myself, even have more then one spirit. How it all started is complicated, and not something for me to explain, as I am not one of the oldest therians, there are much older people you can go to for advice. How it started for me personally, was through youtube, as cliche as it might be to other therians, I saw the Kens5 newscast about Wolfie Blackheart. It brought me into awareness about the people that lived in this community (though there is much debate about us and about Blackheart himself being therians, I believe my pack is, even if Blackheart might now be.) and from there, Google was my guide. My pack was formed June 15, 2011, with three founding members. We took the name Blue Moon and from there it took off, at our peak garnering us 32 members, 16 of which still reside in my pack, and 4 of our originals, along with 4 others, in a branch pack (e.i a pack that split from the main group peacefully to cultivate their own family.)
As for what we do at pack days, that’s very dependant on the spiritual growth of our pups, and what needs to be taught. Some days are simply bonding days, where we walk the trails aorund our local county parks. We live in an area with natural sandstone ledges, so we climb and hang out around the river and streams and just bond together as our animal selves. Other days my mate and I lead lessons for our pups and yearlings, teaching them about therianthropy, how our pack works socially and politically, our proceedures for teachers and family and bullies and well meaning strangers. Of late we’ve been teaching communication- how to howl, bark, whine and growl, what each sound means and how to use the sounds to communicate with the rest of the pack. We learn about how real wolves live and learn in their packs, and help our young members learn these ways too. Other days are purely for documentation, for my documentary, where I give interviews and take photographs and video of our pack.
Anonymous asked: This is just me, but I don't view tail-wearing as Therian-related at all. I see it as a furry thing. Now, being a little bit furry isn't something to be ashamed of. It really isn't. Im a Therian and a furry. The furry part comes from me wanting a fursuit and liking the art. But the Therian stuff is separate from it. I would like to have a fursuit of my Theriotype though, but not because it's my Theriotype. Just because it's become my favorite animal. Which is why I dislike you guys wearing tails
But see the thing is, we don’t just wear the tails for no reason, they have a significant spiritual value for us. Each of our tails represents what’s inside of us, from the color, to the length, everything is chosen to represent the animal in us, and we do not wear it the way furries do, and none of us have fursonas at all. We wear the tails as a deeply spiritual symbol used to help us identify with our animal sides and delve deeper into our animal pysche. No offence to you, I just hate it when people say it like this, like our tail has no significant meaning to us, like it’s just a fashion accesory or to be used in photos or for a drawing we’ve made. It’s all wrong. My tails are sacred to me. I cried when one of them was broken at school, I almost got into a fight over. We treat them with respect and care and honor the spirit of the animal that was inside them, just as it is now inside us.
I missed it so I wanna know when it’ll be up on 1channel? half an hour? and hour?
