The Confederation of Ahap


Recommended Posts

The Confederation of Ahap was a powerful force in the Northern United States Consisting of four tribes - Cehtangi, Dereme, Dahede, and Tohwyen - the Confederation had established itself as a formidable presence in the region. Of the four tribes, Cehtangi was the largest and most influential.




Despite their strength, however, the Confederation found themselves stuck on the Wapiti Reservation by 1876, as white settlers continued to push westward and claim more and more land. a small patch of land allocated to them by the US government.

The once-strong Confederation of Ahap has become a shadow of its former self, reduced to mere remnants of the four tribes that once formed it. Years of conflict and hardship, compounded by forced relocation to the Wapiti Reservation, have taken their toll on the Confederation. The tribes struggle to maintain their cultural identity and way of life amidst the challenges of assimilation and economic hardship.

This Native American faction concept is MEDIUM conflict. It prioritizes role-play interactions above all other conflicts, and all conflict engaged in must be provoked and initiated entirely in-character. We are not here to "win", we are not here to PvP. This does not mean we are a NO conflict faction, but the threshold of portrayal we expect to precede a conflict is high. If this does not suit your tastes, there are plenty of excellent factions with a higher conflict focus. Portrayal here, at all times, is priority.


The Cehtangi tribe are a largely pacified tribe, which means the process of westernization on a Reservation is well under way. They are, however, only recently pacified and sedentary. So the future could change. This faction seeks to emulate the advantages and disadvantages of a tribe at this final cross-road in American history.


Our Role-play will include:

> Daily living on a Reservation. Inter-personal drama, cultural clashes, as well as tribal life coming to terms with the traumas of immense socio-cultural change.

>Interactions in and around Native Americans trying to retain their daily lives and routines, like hunting, gathering, fishing and crafting - as they trade in an economic system designed to exploit

> Great Tribal Councils where the Tribe speaks its truths and the Chiefs speak the laws. Spiritual role-play, vision-quests, ritual warding, warrior societies, women's councils and reflections of political tribal life

> Protecting the People from encroachment, balancing the need to defend ourselves from interlopers while maintaining civil relations with our settler neighbors, who may not respect our very existence.

>Tension portrayal, but also communal spirit of the highest order


Your RP may likely not include:

>Murder on the Wapiti Reservation. Death-matching outside of a war context, is highly improbable.

>Conflict without context - While it may be forced on you IC, this faction will never initiate conflict without sound in-character justification and validation.

> Freedom of movement. This is curtailed, though admittedly we are at times more mobile than other nomadic Native American factions; this is by no means normal.

>Poor understanding of concepts. We expect new members to have researched their desired concept and discussed with us how it could be made to fit our concept. Don't worry, if it's plausible, we can make it work! If it isn't, we'll work with you to make a valid one.

(This faction reserves the right to CK your character if portrayal is deemed inappropriate OOC, or for appropriate reasons IC.)

After passing by the Sundry Ranch and establishing their friendship and peaceful cooperation with the New Hanover Sheriff's Office, with more openness to travel and exploration, a group of Cehtangi, accompanied by their Swedish, Italian and Apache friends leave Wapiti westward and cross into New Austin for the first time, avoiding Tall Trees, despite the unbearable heat for any mountain tribe used to the cold, snow and ice, especially in the months of the winter season. 

New Austin proved to be somewhat worth the long trip across the state, having shown them a brand new world of flora and fauna not possible in the Grizzlies. An interesting yet weird woman kept averting her gaze away from the two Cehtangi men who came shirtless, as it is the custom, especially in the desert heat, speaking words never heard of them before.

Their local guide and friend, Lone Tipi, the Mexican Apache, showed them around and mistakenly may have taught them a few "bad words" in Spanish while doing so, before meeting a group of familiar faces from the Sundry Ranch back in Armadillo of all places. They held some information about a former member of the tribe, that as always, came out on top and avoided capture or harm from even the most dangerous threats lurking in Lannahechee by showing a lack of principle and opportunism bordering on the miraculous.

Coming to peace is a concept not at all forgotten by the tribe of the river and mountains. They've always sought to keep it. Finding a diplomatic solution to problems has always been the Cehtangi way of conducting themselves when it came to foreign affairs. Figure you get more bees with honey, and sometimes it does take more strength to not fight than to fight. They did not start a conflict, but made sure to end them. 

Finding themselves sat on opposite sides once again, face to face with the Comanche under the same tree for the third... fourth...? Anyway, for the manyth time, with yet another go at said diplomatic solution.

The Watsikatu Comanche surprised the Cehtangi with a telegram sent through the United States Marshal Service asking them to meet under their sacred tree. It was not seen favorably as some members of the tribe who had grown tired with the Comanche's incompetence at keeping their promises and maintaining peace. Numerous chiefs of the Quahadi had failed the simple task of not fighting or provoking the Cehtangi and continuing a feud they thought buried from the days of the Blackwater War, that ended with both sides going home without any more bloodshed. The conflict was reignited with the murder of Chieftess Chasing Horse and the young Tall Sparrow, who at the time did not present any threat to the Quahadi, nor was it considered to be a hostile tribe, but rather to be cautious of. 

Peace has been attempted once more since, but the efforts were in vain. Nothing came of it other than a threat that they would see all of the Cehtangi killed for their involvement in the war, but with the Quahadi gone, this presented an opportunity that would be unwise to pass on.

After the new Great Chief of the Watsikatu Swift Bird sat down with Warchief Gentle Bear and Chieftess True Condor of the Cehtangi, in the company of her Watsikatu brave Standing Bear, they spoke, shared perspectives and agreed the era of The Indian Wars are over, and a new focus to be had, moving forward in the new age.

There was finally peace and found common ground to coexist. If only had Chieftess Swift Bird led them sooner...
