Background[edit | edit source]
Tusken Raiders, also known as Sand People, were a nomadic sentient species native to the planet of Tatooine. Tusken Raiders were often hostile to others who inhabited the planet. In the year 22 BBY, a clan of Tuskens captured Anakin Skywalker's mother, Shmi. Anakin went to Tatooine to rescue her from the Tuskens, arriving to see his mother one last time before she succumbed to her injuries. Anakin then proceeded to strike down the group of Tusken Raiders who captured Shmi. Many years later, his son, Luke Skywalker, encountered a Tusken Raider that attacked him. Obi-Wan Kenobi appeared and used a Jedi mind trick on the Raiders who were scavenging Luke's landspeeder. Thinking they were hearing a Krayt dragon, they quickly left.
