The national emblem of the Water Tribe is a circle comprised of a waning crescent moon and three wavy horizontal lines representing ocean water. The emblem represents the relationship between Tui and La, the Moon and Ocean Spirits, who exist in perfect harmony with one another, like Yin and Yang.
The original creator confirmed that and confirmed the direct locations. The Fire Nation is Japanese, the Earth Kingdom is chinese, the air nomads are tibetan, and the water tribes are inuit.
The Water Tribe is based on Inuit, Yupik, and Sirenik Eskimos cultures; the Fire Nation on Imperial Japan with Chinese and Korean cultural influences; the Air Nomads on Tibetan and Nepali Buddhist monks, the Tibetan culture, Buddhism and Hinduism; and the Earth Kingdom on Imperial China with Korean cultural influences.
There are three tribes: the Northern Water Tribe, centered in the North Pole; the Southern Water Tribe, centered in the South Pole; and the Foggy Swamp Tribe, located in the Earth Kingdom’s Foggy Swamp. Both the Northern and Southern Water Tribes are chiefdoms led by a tribal chief.
Earthbending is rigid and structured, so it may be difficult to apply that same concept to something as fluid (and not to mention as dangerous) as lava. The Waterbenders are around various forms of their element and can bend it, but also because waterbending incorporates a lot of versatility.
Hope I made you proud. Bumi is Avatar Aang and Katara’s first child and eldest son, as well as the only one to be born a nonbender among the couple’s three children; he later developed airbending abilities after the Harmonic Convergence of 171 AG.
Male airbenders occupied the Northern and Southern Air Temples, while females lived in the Eastern and Western Air Temples. So Aang presumably didn’t see them often. Airbenders, although not without permanent temples, were mostly nomadic, traveling the world. Hence, the term ‘Air Nomads’.
Unlike most master airbenders who gain their status later in life, Avatar Aang received his tattoos when he was only twelve following his invention of the air scooter, despite only completing thirty-five tiers.
The only one of Aang’s three children to be an airbender, Tenzin and the members of his family are the few remaining airbenders left. Guided by Avatar Aang, and later by Tenzin, the Air Acolytes preserved and practiced the culture and traditions of the Air Nomads, although none of them were airbenders themselves.
He married Pema – a non-bender – and had four children with her from which all were air-benders – Jinora, Ikki, Meelo, Rohan. This guy is puzzling case. You would think that he married Sukki, right?
The water tribe originally descended from a lion turtle that was in a tropical area. That is why they are dark. They must have lived close and used the portal to travel prior to the first harmonic convergence we see. They did not realize that avatar Juan was going to close the portal.
So even at age 13, Aang is definitely the most skilled Avatar in history. Potentially. He has abilities no other Avatar has ever had: seismic sense (taught to him by Toph), lightning redirection (taught to him by Zuko), and energy-bending/spirit-bending (taught to him by the last lion turtle).
Being frozen in an iceberg for 100 years while in the Avatar State drained much of Aang’s life energy. Ultimately, it resulted in Aang dying at the relatively young biological age of 66 since he was in the ice for 100 years, in 153 AG.
As frustrating as it is, the general consensus is that Sokka died of old age and natural causes between age 70 and 85. We first even learn about Sokka’s fate in the series sequel, The Legend of Korra (which you can watch on Amazon Prime, YouTube, and Google Play), when Katara says that he’s passed away.
Nope. For instance the folks of the Water Tribe have darker (cinnamon-colored I guess) skin, blue eyes and smooth dark hair, a combination that is pretty unusual on Earth. People of the Earth Nation often have Asian faces but green eyes.
