The Old Village was the former village of the tribe in the Territory. After the tribe split in two, the villagers who were suspicious of the Governor and the miners stayed in the Old Village. The Old Village is close to sacred petroglyphs created by the villagers. Anca, Waqar, and their child live together in the Old Village.
The Governor and the New Villagers massacre Anca, Waqar and the other Old Villagers by the end of Chapter 8.
