Template:OkamiRace The Moon Tribe is a species of humanoids who lived on the Moon. They all have very long, golden hair and were very technologically advanced. They are also said to have the gift of clairvoyance. Kaguya, Kurow and Waka are the only known members of this race still living. They constructed the Ark of Yamato and seem to have a link to the demons within, especially Yami. Some artifacts of this race were recovered by Amaterasu during her travels through Nippon.
The Moon Tribe once lived on the Moon, and were very advanced, with technology millenia ahead of that on the mortal plain. However, an unspecified catastrophe occured, which wiped out the Moon tribe. Only two members survived: Kaguya, an infant Moon Tribe girl who was placed in a rocket and sent to the mortal plain and Waka, a male member of the tribe who fled to the Celestial Plain in the Ark of Yamato. Waka would later flee in the ark to the mortal plain when Orochi attacked the Celestial Plain, inadvertently killing all the surviving Celestials when they were ambushed by the demons in the ark.
The Moon Tribe is never present as a whole, but their presence is felt and the two survivng members both are important during Amaterasu's adventures in Nippon. Waka is met several times during his journey to find the Ark of yamato and return to the Celestial Plain with Amaterasu, and is extremely important in the plot. Amaterasu also meets Kaguya and helps her unearth the rocket she used to reach the mortal realm.
In the end, Kaguya uses her rocket to return to the moon to search for her birthplace and to unravel the mysteries surrounding her past, and Waka accompanies Amaterasu back to the Celestial Plain. In Okamiden, a young boy named Kuro who appears to be a member of the Moon Tribe and wears similar clothes to Waka appears. Since Waka and Kaguya are the only known Moon Tribespeople, it is possible that Kuro is their offspring. This is later revealed to be untrue, but Kuro is related to Waka in some way.
