The Amaras originate from the Great Tribe, somewhere around Minnesota. Members have travelled here for various reasons; the first to arrive was Dawali Amara, aiming to assist with founding a new tribe. Other members have come to visit him. For more information, see Amara, Dawali Amara and to a degree AniWaya, as all Amaras have exclusively joined the AniWaya tribe.
So far, none of the Amaras have mixed with 'Souls onboard families.
