Character/Costume Description

Tusken Raiders, less formally referred to
as Sand People or simply as Tuskens,
were a culture of nomadic, primitive
sentients indigenous to Tatooine, where
they were often hostile to local settlers.
The term Sand People was given to them
due to their existence in the desert, and
was in use from at least around 4000 BBY;
but the more formal name of Tusken
Raiders was acquired much later, due to a
period of concerted attacks on the
settlement at Fort Tusken in 98-95 BBY.
Although this name is often used as a
common term for the race, it actually
refers only to the participants of the attack
on the settlement.

Specialists studying the past of the Tusken
Raiders also used the term Ghorfa to
denote an earlier sedentary phase of their
culture, and lastly Kumumgah, for the
earliest stratum of sentient civilization on
the planet, believed by some to represent
a common ancestry shared by the Ghorfa
and the Jawas. In the culture of the
Tuskens, to expose any part of the flesh
was forbidden and seen as a disgrace.
