Like many other alooian tribes and cultures the Nurem - one of Mananras tribes - craft most of thier tools and weapons out of Keke (something derived from creatures that resembles synthetic resin). But it was only the Nurem, who were able to give the Keke the strength that gave Nurem armor and blades a similar strength to metal, but were much lighter. With the arrival of the P'kun in Mananra, they adopted the techniques of the Nurem and spread them across dozens of refuges.
The Hunter of Mananra hunt often alongside their hunting companions - which are often Attataro. Attataros were and are kept as pets by many aloo. While relatively small compared to other pets, they are also very brave. It is not uncommon for Attataros to kill prey that is up to three times the size of themselves. Also noteworthy is their loud roar, which usually serves to warn of enemies. It is striking that Attataros have neither claws nor significant fangs, as they use their muscular tails to break the necks of their prey. Attataros have a skin sack on their backs that can be inflated and used both for courtship and as a resonating body.
The mananranian Rangers.
There always has been a strong bond between the Aloo of Mananra and their Pets and Mounts. The Sheriffs of Mananra are known for their friendship with their Hirathara Mounts. But that is not surprising. Although Mananra is home to some of civilization's greatest strongholds, large parts of Mananra are covered in dense "forests". Getting from the major cities to the smaller towns often takes travelers several days, so mananranian sheriffs carry camping gear and goods, so that they can spend the nights in the woods without any problems.
The Akuenara have developed a tribal society that is strongly connected to hunting, but at the same time, also connected to nature. In stark contrast to all other Aloonian tribal cultures, the Akuenara lived in a sexually segregated, matriarchal society. They began early on to view narcissism as the greatest threat to peace.

This led to a society where external features, such as jewelry or clothing, were not used to shape one's personality. The individual should be distinguished solely by their actions and words, not through material symbolism.
While there were indeed pieces of jewelry or special clothing, they were always passed on before they could be associated with a specific person, so they could not become a kind of "trademark." Among hunters, it was tradition to wear identical tribal masks to conceal their faces. These masks were also called "Akueta."
Nudity was also associated with honesty. The idea was that someone who is naked can hide less. Therefore, it was considered honorable, albeit potentially uncomfortable in the forests of Baz Akuenaras, to wear little or no clothing, as it symbolized humility and exemplary behavior. Later, with the transition from a pure tribal society of many small, homogenous groups scattered across the land to citizenships that built ever larger cities, the dogma of Akueta, which taught the rejection of physical individualism, diminished somewhat. This gave rise to the tattoos that the Akuenara are known for beyond the borders of their refuge, alongside their strong inclination towards nudism.
Today, the Akuenara are part of the UPUTL and have been largely assimilated by the P'kun. Nevertheless, the Akuenarans (or individuals who identify with the culture) constitute a significant percentage of all Aloo and, along with the P'kun and the Unom, are the numerically largest culture within the UPUTL.
After the UPUTL delegation arrived in Gwondra, the first task was to search for allies. In contrast to the large Gwond tribes, which viewed the foreigners as enemies, three smaller tribes saw the foreigners as a solution to their biggest problem, which was always having to act as a buffer between the large fronts.
However, in the first meeting between the chiefs and the delegation, it quickly became clear that it might not be a good idea to invite the chiefs of the three tribes, which are still enemies, to sit at the same table.
Rakashi (Chief of the Firewalkers) responds to Akaal (Chief of the White Hands) asking whether "the fear of the great tribes would prevent him from uniting his warriors with those of the White Hands," we see here.
