Council of Elders
ouncil of elders
The Council of Elders are the theocratic leaders of the Air Nomads. Each of the Air Temples has its own council of Head Monks and/or Nuns, their members being both the political and the religious authorities. The Northern and Southern councils are composed of five head monks each, and the Eastern and Western councils are composed of five head sisters each. They are the only ones allowed to enter the Air Sanctuary in each Air Temple, other than the Avatar. They are also the ones responsible for identifying the Avatar when he or she was born into the Air Nomads. The councils of monks of different temples work together to govern the entire Air Nomad civilization.
