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.
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.

When you pass the first layer of fun animation and jokes, we can see the four nations each represent a specific aspect of Asian culture: the Fire Nation represents imperial Japan, the Earth Kingdom represents Communist China, the Northern and Southern Water Tribes represent indigenous people, and the Air Nomads
Once again acting dutifully to her tribe, Yue sacrificed herself to give back the life that the Moon had given her. This was against Sokka’s wishes, but the young warrior did not stop her in the end. She placed her hands onto the fish, closed her eyes, and died in Sokka’s arms.
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’.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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).
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.
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.
Korra is not biologically related to Tenzin. Korra’s father is Tonraq, who was part of the ruling family of the Northern Water Tribe. Tenzin is the son of Avatar Aang and Katara. Aang was an Air Nomad, so he has no relation to Korra, and Katara does not seem to have any familial relationship to Senna.
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.
