The Air Nomads is a collective term for a nation of people who practice the discipline of airbending. One of the series' four major nations, the Air Nomads were wanderers by definition, but had four Air Temples, one at each corner of the globe, hidden away atop mountain ranges in the northern Earth Kingdom and on three remote islands. The theocratic Air Nomads were home to a monastic order of men and women who practiced Airbending. Unlike the other Nations, the people of the Air Nomads were, without any seen exception, all benders due to the high level of spirituality of their people.

The Air Nomads were the smallest of the four nations in the world. Its economy, such as it was entirely based on limited agriculture. Population of the Air Nomads was small compared to even the water tribe, and was far smaller than either of the world's two major powers, the fire nation and the earth kingdom However, they were the only nation completely composed of benders, as all Air Nomads were capable of airbending

Airbenders who have attained a level of mastery in the art are marked with arrow tattoos, based on the arrows of the sky bison, the first Airbenders. For male Airbenders, a primary arrow tattoo is placed on their shaven head that extends down their back, along with four others, one on each limb that terminates in an arrowhead at the hands or feet. For the women, it is unknown whether their arrows continue under their hair. The Air Temples are:Northern Air Temple, Southern Air Temple, Eastern Air Temple, Western Air Temple, and Air Temple Island.

The Northern and Southern Air Temples inhabitated all monks, in the Eastern and Western lived nuns, and on Air Temple Island the genders are mixed.
