The Tulkun Way is an ancient philosophy created by the tulkun, sentient, whale-like creatures of Pandora.

History[]

During the time of the The First Songs, the earliest recollections of Na'vi history, the tulkuns were violent creatures who fought amongst themselves for territory and revenge. At some point, the tulkuns gave up this way of life and adopted a pacifistic nature wherein all forms of killing are strictly outlawed, even if the killing is justified, such as in the case of self-defense. Thusly, any tulkuns who go against the Tulkun Way and kill are outcast from the tulkuns. Due to the kinship between the tulkuns and the oceanic Metkayina clan, any outcast tulkuns are similarly rejected and shunned by the Metkayina.

Payakan's Banishment[]

Payakan was outcast from the tulkuns when he led a group of tulkuns and Na'vi against the Resources Development Administration in retaliation of them killing his mother, which ultimately led to the deaths of most of the war party.
