The Trikru, also known as the Woods Clan, People of the Woods, Trigedakru, and Tree People, are a Grounder Clan that inhabit the expanse of woodlands around the area in which the Sky People landed. Their borders also extend to the location which was once Washington, D.C. but is now known as Tondc. Their largest city and capital is Polis and is where the Commander resides.
The Trikru maintain a hostile relationship toward the Reapers, Mountain Men, and Sky People. When the delinquents first landed in their territory and burned a village to the ground, they retaliated and a conflict broke out. The Sky People, however, continued to seek peace with them. At first, Lexa, the Commander of the 12 Clans, was willing to extend peace to the Sky People provided that the Sky People leave their territory. Eventually, the Sky People and the Grounders formed an alliance and agree to work together to free their people from Mount Weather. However, the Mountain Men made a deal with the Commander, freeing all the imprisoned Grounders in exchange for the Coalition abandoning the Sky People. This left the delinquents at the mercy of the Mountain Men and jeopardized the alliance between the Sky People and the Grounders. However, after the Mountain Men were completely killed, Lexa told the Sky People to join the Coalition as the thirteenth clan, in order to make peace with them.
The Trikru are a group of Grounders who came together after the Nuclear Apocalypse 97 years prior. Most children begin to learn from a young age how to be warriors and are taught English, weapon skills, and their people's customs.
If a child is born with a mutation, they are cast out and abandoned to erase the stain from the bloodline.

Trikru warriors are known to speak their native language, Trigedasleng and American English (Gonasleng). Only the Warriors speak English, which makes them bilingual.
In Season Three, Octavia, Clarke, and Kane are shown to be rather fluent in Trigedasleng.
