Tusken Raiders
First Appearance: Star Wars

Tusken Raiders (less formally referred to as Sand People or simply as Tuskens), are fictional creatures in the Star Wars universe. They are characterized as a nomadic warrior race that lives on the planet Tatooine.

Appearances in Star Wars media

Tusken Raiders first appear in Star Wars when a pack of them attack Luke Skywalker in the Jundland Wastes and knock him unconscious. However, Just as they are going through Luke's Landspeeder, Obi-Wan Kenobi frightens them off by imitating a Krayt dragon's mating call and rescues Luke.

They briefly appear in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, taking shots at the Pod Race drivers, and again in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones, set 22 years before Star Wars; in this film, they have kidnapped Anakin Skywalker's mother, Shmi, and tortured her for a month. Anakin eventually finds her, but is too late; she is mortally injured and dies in his arms. Seized by a violent rage, Anakin slaughters the entire tribe, including the women and children.
