Culture and cultural heritage
For nomads, family is valued and irreplaceable, even in the afterlife the bond isn't shattered, the family is eternal. The individual is nothing without the group and the family is over any of its members. Family is patriarchal in nature, being the father in charge of his sons, unmarryed daugthers and his sons families. Women goes to their husbands family and return to their own if they divorce. They place little value on money, making the exchanges mostly in barter. They speak Luga, derived from the tongue of the Medina Empire.
Common Customs, traditions and rituals
Nomads consider honor the top value, never to be broken and with nothing to be ashamed of. Honor is a familiar matter, so if a man acts with dishonor, brings shame to all his family. Every ofense must be cleared with the needed punishment and restitution. If a family member is killed, they have the right to kill their killer, eye for eye, hand for hand. Hospitality is considered mandatory, the host must protect the guest, and the guest should not bring harm onto the host. The hospitality vow is made when the guest eats food from the host and lasts 3 days. Loyalty to the family is another important value. Also is purity, as a man and a woman should refrain from uneeded touch unless married. Finally comes piety, nomads follow a pantheon that varies from tribe to tribe or even from family to family. A nomad must be pious, but every creed is acepted.
Going against family, breaking your given word, impiety and failing to uphold hospitality are major sins to the Beni Husein
