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.
Avatar: The Last Airbender, commonly referred to as ATLA, takes place in a world of four nations: the Water Tribes, Earth Kingdom, Fire Nation, and the Air Nomads, which are based on Inuit, Chinese, Japanese, and Tibetan cultures respectively.
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 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.
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.

Mostly Chinese but a little of Japanese for the Fire nation and Inuit for the Water nation. The series is notable for borrowing extensively from East Asian art and mythology for its universe.
So it might be baffling to learn that Avatar: the Last Airbender, created by Michale DeMartino and Bryan Konietzko and pitched to Nickelodeon, grew from a source material more historical than literary; no, Avatar is not based on a book or graphic novel.
Avatar: 10 Strongest Characters At The End Of The Series, Ranked 1 Aang. Aang was the strongest bender in the show. 2 Fire Lord Ozai. Fire Lord Ozai was a tyrant who wanted to take over the world. 3 Uncle Iroh. There was a reason UncleIroh was called the Great Dragon of the West. 4 Toph. 5 Hama. 6 Katara. 7 Azula. 8 Zuko.
Air Nomads Aang had a series of tattoos around his body. This made him the youngest known airbending master until his granddaughter Jinora received her tattoos at the age of eleven in 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’.
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.
The weakest element in Avatar is fire. In terms of combat, other functionalities, and versatility, firebending falls really quite low. Let’s look at combat bending. Firebending is one of the best offences as fire and lightning are incredibly difficult to block.
Azula’s fire was made blue to denote both her mastery in both firebending and lightning-creation. Azula’s fire burns hotter than most due to her lightning-mastery, but will turn orange as it cools. Second in raw power only to the Fire Lord Ozai, she was a force to be reckoned with.
