The keeper of the bukshah is the sole person in the collage of Rin taskes with tending to the bukshah that live in the Rin valley. The title designates one as a bukshah herder. The keeper of the bukshah makes sure that the animals stay together and are safe all year round no matter the season, they aid the bukahah when they give birth and they are also responsible for helping them climb the Mountain every winter on their annual way pilgrimage to the cave of Mountain Heart where they feed on the grey fungus of sealing ice creeper nest under the cave.

The role as keeper of the bukshah has traditionally been given to more timid and seemingly weaker people of Rin, as it has always been viewed as easier work than the hard kabour the stronger people are given, whom the village also seemingly value more highly.

The current keeper of the bukshah is Rowan. Often the keepers of the bukahah are addressed and referred to with an "of the Bukahah" line added at the back of their names. As such, Rowan is sometimes called "Rowan of the Bukshah."
