Do not fill this in!== Known Clans == The Na'vi have no far-reaching political structures on the scale of nation-states, but are organized into relatively structured clans. Occasionally different clans from far-reaching areas will cooperate in times of great crisis. The only known event that has caused all clans to join together is when they are led by a "Toruk Makto", a Na'vi that has managed to ride and control a [[Great Leonopteryx]], uniting all clans under him. By the events of the Avatar film (c. 2154), this has only ever happened five times, and the last Toruk Makto lived four generations ago. Pandora is largely a jungle world, and thus many Na'vi tribes are similar to the Omatikaya clan that lives near the RDA mining operations at Hell's Gate. Evidence on other clans is sketchy, however, and it is vaguely implied that clans from other biomes may display some regional variation in culture. * Tree Clans of the Jungle - jungle-dwelling clans that live in [[Hometree]]s. * Horse Clans of the Plains - live in the plains which are beyond the jungles, within traveling distance of the Omatikaya. While the Omatikaya ride [[Direhorses]] when necessary, the Plains Riders have heavily based their way of life around riding them. They seem to favor facial piercing with bone somewhat more than the Omatikaya. * Ikran Clans of the Eastern Sea - live on the coastal cliffs, within traveling distance of the Omatikaya. While the plains clans are more reliant on [[Direhorse]]s than the Omatikaya, the Ikran clan is more dependent on [[Mountain Banshee]]s, that make it possible to reach otherwise inaccessible cliffs. While the Omatikaya decorate their bodies with stripes of warpaint when going into battle, Ikran clan appears to wear body-paint much more often, and far more of it. It is possible that this is for status reasons: the female lead warrior of this clan was decorated in large patches of red body-paint in complex shapes. When Jake Sully, as the sixth Toruk Makto (''Rider of the Last Shadow''), rallied "all the clans" to aid the Omatikaya in driving off the RDA and protecting the [[Tree of Souls]], fourteen clans were said to answer the call (since Jake mentions fifteen clans, counting the Omatikaya in). Thus there are at least that many clans that the Omaticaya are within traveling distance of.
