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.
