Shoanti Customs

Hashke Used when meeting a jothka or other Shoanti leader. One moves a sheathed weapon to his or her off side or, if carrying a weapon in hand, moves it to the off hand and holds it backwards. This is accompanied by a shallow bow during which one does not break eye contact.
The Walk Each morning a clan leader walks the camp, hearing the concerns of his people and taking the measure of the camp as a whole.
