Hakoda smiling

Hakoda was the father of Sokka and Katara, the husband of the late Kya, the son of Kanna, and the chieftain of a minor tribe at the South Pole that was part of the Southern Water Tribe's tribal confederation. Even though Hakoda was not the formal chief of the Southern Water Tribe, he was one of its most prominent leaders at the end of the Hundred Year War, skilled as talented ship captain, igloo builder, and weapons maker. Much of Sokka's ingenuity and craftiness was learned from his father. He went off to fight the Fire Nation two years before the end of the Hundred Year War, leaving his children to be raised by Kanna. After the war, Hakoda was elected to serve as Head Chieftain of the Southern Water Tribe and worked closely with Northerners to oversee the Southern Reconstruction Project, placing his leadership in question to the Southerners who opposed foreign intervention.
