District 9 Tributes

District 9 Tributes, 74th Hunger Games


Two District 9 victors.


  • District 9 is the least spoken about district in the Hunger Games series.
  • The only hint given that District 9's industry was grain is that it is said that District 9 has lots of factories.
  • In the 75th Hunger Games, District 9 was one of the two districts to have both tributes killed on the first day.
  • In the 74th Hunger Games, District 9 was one of the four (movie) and three (book) districts to have both tributes die on the first day.
  • District 9 is the only district to have both tributes to die on the first day of the games in the 74th and 75th Hunger Games.

  • There is no named person from District 9 in the books or the films.
  • District 9 was the 5th - 10th district to pry from Capitol rule.
  • In the Mockingjay Part 1 film, Peeta stated reports of rebelling districts. He mentioned that there was a district that set granaries on fire, this presumably was the method of rebelling District 9 had done by cutting food supply.
