:''"The Ahemmusa are among the most peaceful of Ashlander tribes and the weakest in terms of amassing any sort of warband. They wear light clothing, often adorned with small shells, scales and even netting. Their weapons are more like tools, simple knives and spears they can use to work as well as defend themselves if need be. They prefer to keep to themselves and be left alone, living out their lives hunting, herding, and especially fishing."'' — {{Lore Link|Ulran Releth}}, ''"{{Lore Link|Ashlander Tribes and Customs}}"''</noinclude>
The {{Lore Link|Ahemmusa Tribe}} is one of the four native {{Lore Link|Ashlanders|Ashlander tribes}} of {{Lore Link|Vvardenfell}}. Living in their [[Lore:Ahemmusa_Camp|current settlement]] in the northeastern corner of the island, the Ahemmusa have been gravely affected by {{Lore Link|the Blight}} disease, ash storms and the recent activity of {{Lore Link|Red Mountain}}. The peaceful Ahemmusa suffer from attacks of corprus creatures and other animals that have gone mad due to the blight storms.
The {{Lore Link|Ahemmusa Tribe}} is one of the four distinct tribes of the {{Lore Link|Ashlander}}s of {{Lore Link|Vvardenfell}}, in the province of {{Lore Link|Morrowind}}. The Ahemmusa are some of the most peaceful tribes in Vvardenfell and other parts of Morrowind, but they also like to be isolated and kept to themselves. They are hunters, herders, and mostly fishermen that live off the fat of the land. Because they are proficient fishers, they can be found in their own settlement, the {{Lore Link|Ahemmusa Camp}}, which is normally found in coastal areas. Their clothing reflects this as well, when it consists of seashells, scales, and netting.{{Ref|name=Customs|{{Cite Book|Ashlander Tribes and Customs}}}}<noinclude>
The Ahemmusa have little in the way of gold, subsisting mostly by barter. The tribe is currently under stress due to a scarcity of food. Hunting and herding have become arduous because of attacks by maddened creatures, dying plants, and sick animals. Many members of the tribe have died, including the Ashkhan, who left no clear successor.
In the absence of a true Ashkhan, they are led by one of their wise women, Sinnammu Mirpal, whose primary concern is the safety and health of the tribe. To this end, she has been looking for a safe destination for migration, following the nomadic nature of native Vvardenfell people. The tribe has another wise woman, Urshamusa Rapli, and Mamaea is their healer.
The Ahemmusa Tribe was founded by {{Lore Link|Nalor Ahemmusa}} many years ago as one of the First Ashkhans. Nalor's cairn was established just south of {{Lore Link|Ald'ruhn}}. In order to gain his blessing, one must offer an {{Lore Link|Ashen Fern}}.{{Ref|[[Online:Farseer Kuamta|Farseer Kuamta]]'s dialogue in [[Online:Morrowind|ESO: Morrowind]]}}
During the {{Lore Link|Interregnum}} around {{Year|2E 583}}, the Ahemmusa Tribe had established their camp in the {{Lore Link|Bitter Coast}}, when the Great Houses of {{Lore Link|Redoran}} and {{Lore Link|Telvanni}} had established settlements across their former territory.{{Ref|name=Customs}} The tribe would occasionally gather at the encampment of Ald'ruhn. The blessing of Nalor Ahemmusa, along with the other First Ashkhans, was what allowed House Dunmer to mingle with the Ashlanders, which would subsequently lead to the founding of the city of Ald'ruhn.{{Ref|[[Online:Ancestral Ties|Ancestral Ties]] quest in [[Online:Morrowind|ESO: Morrowind]]}}
During {{Lore Link|the Blight}} outbreak in {{Year|3E 427}}, the Ahemmusa Camp had established their camp on the northern tip of the {{Lore Link|Grazelands}}. The Blight would lead to the death of the Ahemmusa's Ashkhan, who would be replaced by their Wise Woman, {{Lore Link|Sinnammu Mirpal}}. The Ahemmusa would be driven from their hunting grounds and threatened by nearby creatures.{{Ref|[[Morrowind:Sul-Matuul|Sul-Matuul]]'s dialogue in [[Morrowind:Morrowind|Morrowind]]}} Sinnammu Mirpal would focus on moving the Ahemmusa once again, primarily to the island ruins of {{Lore Link|Ald Daedroth}}. She would employ the help of the aspiring {{Lore Link|Nerevarine}}, who would clear the ruins from a cult of {{Lore Link|Sheogorath}} worshippers. When the warrior returned successfully, Mirpal had recognized them as the ''Nerevarine'', and awarded them the {{Lore Link|Madstone of Ahemmusa}}.{{Ref|[[Morrowind:Ahemmusa Nerevarine|Ahemmusa Nerevarine]] quest in [[Morrowind:Morrowind|Morrowind]]}}
