The Water Tribe is a group of Waterbenders in the North Pole. They also have ancestors that live in the Southern Tundra. The Southern Water Tribe is very small and is not much more than a few igloos and a small wall. The Northern Water Tribe has resisted the War for a hundred years, intel it was taken over in the Siege of the North. The Southern Water tribe gave and accepted the Fire Nation rule.
