Kemetic Orthodoxy claims to be based on the religious practices of Ancient Egypt. However, it is not only a reconstructionist religion, but an ever-evolving religion that combines ancient and modern practices to create a new, living religion.[1] It has five principal tenets, often described as four main tenets held together by a fundamental belief in upholding ma'at.
These tenets are not considered dogma. Although these form the basis of what most members Kemetic Orthodoxy believe, what each individual member believes may vary. The religion does not require that all members practice in exactly the same way, and different views are looked upon as merely different ways of understanding God, or Netjer.

Kemetic Orthodoxy is one of a number of Kemetic Reconstructionist religions. It was founded in the late 1980's by Ms. Tamara Siuda. It strives to reconstruct the religious practices of the people of Ancient Kemet, now called Egypt. It also incorporates rituals and concepts unique to this particular sect, causing it to be called more of a revivalist religion than a strict reconstructionist faith. Currently, Kemetic Orthodoxy's only temple, Tawy House, is located in Joliet, Illinois
