Namara are basically treated as adults as soon as they hit the age of 10. Before reaching that age, they are cared for by the whole clan. After reaching that age, they must build their own hut and start helping the clan, though the clan will always help one another. Elderly Namara older than 600 are treated with the utmost respect, and almost worshiped. Namara welcome death, seeing it as a right of passage to the spirit lands where they can be with their ancestors and where the bravest and most true Namara hold watch.
