The Council of Guardians is the government in the Gathering Blue village. They make decisions, settle disputes, etc. They reside in Council Edifice. Jamison is the only member whose name is mentioned. Kira's trial occurs during Gathering Blue.
During Gathering Blue, Vandara brought Kira to trial in Council Edifice. Her claims were that she was useless, took up space, ate a lot, and that her land was needed so that she and the rest of the women could build a pen for her tykes. Since Kira was a child, she had the opportunity to appoint a defender for her. Although she wanted to defend herself, she realized the wisdom in appointing a matured adult to defend in her place. The member of the Council of Guardians, Jamison, was appointed. Although Vandara fought hard to get her sent to The Field of Leaving, the council decided to move Kira to accommodation in Council Edifice and give her land to Vandara so that she could build a pen for her tykes.
Kira then lived in Council Edifice and worked as The Threader, repairing the Singer's Robe.
