Description and culture

The Dantari were one of the planet's native intelligent life. They were a muscular and well-built people who lived a simple, nomadic life, wandering about Dantooine's coastline in tribes. Speculation persisted that they were the descendants of an early, lost Republic settlement effort, but no research has ever confirmed the theory.[1] The Dantari had an extensive knowledge of the medicinal properties of the local flora and fauna. They treasured the root of the Vincha plant for its incredible anesthetic powers. Several Dantari tribes were known, including the Janta, Kunga and Mokk.

The Dantari also participated in an elaborate form of gift exchange as a way of establishing ties between individuals and tribes. Any object could be exchanged, including magic stones, weapons, wooden statues, and even the treasured Vincha plant.

History

The Dantari have been present since modern Republic colonization efforts began, circa 4,000 BBY, but contact between the natives and colonists was rare.[2] During the time of the New Republic a small colony was established by the Republic for the people of Eol Sha. However, Admiral Daala discovered the colony and chose it as one of her first targets. Under the leadership of Commander Kratas a regiment of AT-AT's were deployed. The ensuing battle destroyed the entire colony and caused the destruction of a single AT-AT.

As a result, the Dantari believed the Imperials to be gods. Some Dantari had crude tattoos of AT-AT's, or the Imperial insignia, or images of Imperial blasters, or the outlines and seams of stormtrooper armor on their chests. The Dantari are also known to have tried to make clothes that look like the pilots flight jumpsuit, and fashioned weapons and tools from shards of AT-AT armor.

The Dantari attempted to later communicate with refugees sent from the New Republic, however, the Yuuzhan Vong invaded and massacred the refugees, then proceeded to attack the Dantari. As the result, the Dantari were almost completely wiped out.[1][2]
