These nomadic natives of Tatooine, also called Sand People, often raid moisture farms and small towns. They take Banthas as their mounts and attack using their traditional weapon, the gaderffi stick. To protect themselves from the harsh suns and sand of Tatooine, they wear heavy robes, breath masks, and eye protection. It is forbidden for any Tusken to show his flesh.
