Folkways

Kahokians do not use chairs or stools. They avoid any kind of furniture beyond tables that can be rapidly disassembled and sit on rugs, which are exceptionally important to them.

Kahokians carry a mirror with them, as a symbol of how they are a reflection of their people.

Kahokians do not cover their heads, ever. To do so is to disrespect their hair, which is of importance.

Overview

In the intervening years, they developed a strong culture that is nomadic, horse based, and often seen as savage by the people of the Empire. There were several Grand Houses that split during the Schism and took the path less traveled, the path of smoke and fire and shadow. These houses remain the core of the great nomadic groups that cross the landscape of Kahokia, now as Clans and Nations.

Kahokians are open, direct, and without much in the way of ulterior motives about anything. They can tend towards being literal, and value personal skill and ability very highly, while finding much of the Empire ultimately too noisy, too crowded, and too much

Folks whisper the word savage around them, and they know it, but they are not savage nor unrefined – they simply don’t find much worth or value in fine silks or manners which hide a person’s true intentions. Kahokians are a not generally prone to adventuring, so those who step forth are a breed apart, always ore Kahokian, in part because they feel they have to represent their people at all times and carry with them the best of their people and be the truest. While much of this is worn away over time (it is said that Shim Sheroo was originally Kahokian), it can still persist.
