Nita is an adolescent bear. She is the childhood friend and later wife of Kenai. Nita was born as an Inuk human.
Nita was born to Chilkoot and his wife. During her early childhood, Nita and her tribe lived near Tanana's tribe, of whom her friend Kenai was a member. One day, while out playing with Kenai, Nita fell through a frozen lake, but was saved by Kenai. This caused Nita to develop a phobia of water. While helping Nita recover at Hokani Falls, Kenai gave Nita his amulet.
As adolescent Nita is making ready to get married to Atka, a man from a neighboring tribe. She chooses to wear her mother's wedding dress, to which Chilkoot tells Nita seeing her wearing the dress makes her look like her mother on her wedding day.
Whenever the time for the wedding comes, a crack appears between Nita and Atka. The tribe see this as a sign from The Great Spirits. Nita goes to her tribe's shawoman Innoko, who tells her due to Kenai (who is living as a bear now) giving Nita his amulet, the both of them have been bonded by The Great Spirits and in order to sever the bond so Nita will marry Atka, she must go with Kenai to Hokani Falls during the equinox and burn the amulet. To help her on her mission, Innoko channels the powers of the Great Spirits to give Nita the ability to communicate with creatures.
Nita travels through the forest and comes across a bear, which she fights. The bear sees her amulet and reveals that he is Kenai and introduces her to his adoptive bear sibling Koda. When Nita reveals what her mission is, Kenai declines to help. However when Nita tells him that she will ask The Great Spirits to change him back to a human to help her, Kenai (not wanting to be isolated from Koda) finally agrees.
During the journey to Hokani Falls, Nita's amulet is stolen by a raccoon named Bering. Nita and Kenai get into an fight over it. The next morning, Nita learns from Koda that Kenai was leaving to get the amulet back. They follow Kenai to where Bering lives. Bering declines to give back the amulet before he and his large family throw pinecones at the trio. Whilst Kenai creates a diversion, Nita climbs up the tree and searches for the amulet in the possession of a baby raccoon. Nita gets the amulet back, only for the baby raccoon to sob, alerting Bering and the other raccoons of her presence. The raccoons attempt to get the amulet back, but fail due to Kenai assisting Nita.
Later, Nita assists Kenai and Koda's moose friends Rutt and Tuke win the affections of two moosettes named Kata and Anda by having them act like big sibling figures to Koda. As they continue their journey, Nita reveals to Kenai that she has a fear of water still. Kenai assists Nita overcome her fear of water and the pair's bond strengthens. Later, Nita talks with Kenai and asks if he misses being a human. Koda, fearing that Kenai will leave him for Nita, encounters the two of them over this and runs off. Nita follows Koda, who declines to have Kenai taken from him. The pair get trapped under an avalanche, but are saved by Kenai, who assures Koda that he would never abandon him.
The trio eventually reach Hokani Falls where Nita burns the amulet. Afterwards, Nita realizes that due to completing her mission, her ability to communicate with animals has stopped, thus she can no longer understand what Kenai and Koda are saying. Nita returns to her tribe to resume her wedding, much to her disappointment.
As Nita makes ready for the wedding, Chilkoot asks her why she is sad. Nita replies that while it was the spirits who did not want her to marry Atka, it is her heart that does not want her to right now. Just then, they hear hollering and Nita sees Koda in the village (as he came to reunite Nita with Kenai) with Kenai showing up to get Koda. The villagers however think Kenai and Koda are ambushing them. Nita sees Atka fighting Kenai and pushing him off a cliff. Nita reprimands Atka for harming Kenai before going to the latter's side. Kenai tries to talk to Nita, but she can only hear snarls. Kenai places his paw on Nita's chest, making Nita realize that he is expressing his feelings for her, which she returns.
Just then, The Great Spirits appear in the sky above them. Their presence makes Nita and Kenai able to speak to each other. Koda reveals that he was asking The Great Spirits to change Kenai back to a human. However, Kenai does not wish to abandon Koda. With Chilkoot's blessing, Nita has The Great Spirits turn her into a bear so she can live with Kenai and Koda.
Nita and Kenai marry in the village with the villagers and Kenai's friends present.
