From the days of their first Chief, LightningRider, who brought the tribe their founding myth, the Sky Shadows have been led by Chiefs who earn their station by their lineage. They rule over a village “empire” with each stage of life having its own house. Because of their limited years and the virtual certainty of their lifespan, the Sky Shadows are obsessed with time. In their village are such structures as the “mothering tent” where children are taught to walk and speak, and the “Chief’s Hut” where a trinity of “elders” including the Chief, the Medicine Man and the First Warrior meet to discuss tribal business. There is also a “Death House,” which serves as a primitive hospital and shrine.
