For many years, the clan had been disbanded and scattered about through the shinobi world, without a leader to compose them. They resided in many villages in small family clumps. It wasn't until when the Yondaime Hokage would commission for the clan to fully reside together again, is when there had been a great pilgrimage of Senju towards Konohagakure. It is then when the Senju were recognized as an official clan of the village, and were given a designated section near the training grounds. There the Senju Grand Tree was established, which hosts the Senju Grand Library within, filled with scrolls and books pertaining to the history of the clan, as well as many of it's secrets.

Before the Yondaime's fade into obscurity and history, he had appointed Uetto Senju as the new clan leader. Uetto continues to search for and gather the small remnants of the clan where Tomi had left off. Many Senju are still spread-out in the shinobi world, and have yet to decide or agree on moving to the central epicenter of the clan.


Uetto Senju, before stepping down, succeeded in bringing in more users of Wood Release within the clan -- and even some without it -- into the clan, and it has grown much more because of it. Among the members is a seal that lets them communicate with one another telepathically and allows the leaders to summon the members if needed. After having placed these seals -- by allowing members to sign the Senju scroll -- and leading the clan for awhile Uetto became ill which led the Senju Grand Tree to seek out a new leader. That leader, of course, was Nathan who is the current leader of the clan.


The Senju clan has gained fame in the shinobi world. Where other clans focused on mastering one particular skill, the Senju were prodigious in all skills, from ninjutsu, to taijutsu, to genjutsu. Because of this, they were feared as "The Clan with a Thousand Skills" (「千の手を持つ一族」, "sen no te o motsu ichizoku"), which gave them their name "Senju" (千手, "a thousand skills", "a thousand hands").
