There comes a time in the life of the Tribe for young people to undergo training and take part in feats and quest to determine their qualities and skills to become warriors. The Tribe relies on its warriors and champions to defend their lands and waters from invaders.
Nature is all around them and the Tribe are ‘with one’ with this space. They know and understand life in the forest from the small ants to the dark and dangerous animals that live there. They hunt to survive and provide food for their families - they do not hunt for sport.
There senses are well tuned to the forest and wild places around them, they are observant with a keen eye to detail and the slightest movement, they have razor sharp hearing and can hear the smallest animals crawling in the undergrowth. Their sense of smell is also well tuned and they can smell any slight change around them from the faint smell of smoke on the wind to the individual smell of animals and humans.
The village welcomes the newcomers friendships are made and new friends are also invited to take part in the Warrior Skills and Warrior Quest events of the Tribe. This is a rite of passage event - held yearly by the tribe- when young people can seek to become a warrior. If they pass all of the tests and feats they will have demonstrated that they are no longer children but can now survive in any environment - they will be Warriors of the Tribe.
