Katara is a waterbending master, born in the Southern Water Tribe to Chief Hakoda and his wife Kya. She became Aang’s waterbending instructor after their departure from the Northern Water Tribe, replacing Master Pakku, who had instructed them during their time there.
The Southern Water Tribe is an independent state located at the South Pole and is the southern division of the Water Tribes. A federation of several smaller tribes, the South is ruled by a Council of Elders, who also elect the tribe’s chief.
The Northern and Southern Water Tribes located at the world’s poles are based on Inuit Tribes, while the Foggy Swamp Tribe, located in the Earth Kingdom, is based on the people of the Mississippi River Delta.
It was stated that at some point in time, a portion of people left and started a new life in the South Pole (probably because of the weird societal rules the NP had). That’s why it’s so much smaller and that’s why the Moon and Ocean spirits were at the North Pole instead.
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?
Appa Likely Died At The Same Time As Aang Since both spent one hundred years frozen in an iceberg, the same condition that led to Aang’s death probably also affected Appa.
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.
The raids appeared to be a victory for the Fire Nation with the death of Kya, who was thought to be the last waterbender. However, Kya had lied about her identity in order to safeguard her daughter Katara, the last true waterbender of the Southern Water Tribe.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
The Legend of Korra television series. After the death of Aang, Korra is born among the Southern Water Tribe, her bending abilities over Water, Earth and Fire manifesting by age 4.
