Six Actions: Misc



Up to date as of February 04, 2010

From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

The Six Actions, or Resol'nare in Mando'a, were the central tenets of Mandalorian life. They consisted of:

  1. Wear armor
  2. Speak the language
  3. Defend yourself and your family
  4. Raise your children as Mandalorians
  5. Contribute to the clan's welfare
  6. When called to arms by Mand'alor, rally to his cause

Anyone who wished to be considered Mandalorian had to abide by these guidelines and live these actions daily. Mandalorians that did not follow the Resol'nare were considered to be dar'manda—someone who was ignorant of their Mandalorian heritage. The status of dar'manda was widely feared within Mandalorian society due to the belief it meant they were soulless and had no place in the Manda—the Mandalorian afterlife.

During the Mandalorian Wars, anyone—Mandalorian or otherwise—was considered dar'manda and soulless from birth until they joined the Mandalorians and lived by the Resol'nare.

Young Mandalorian children were taught a rhyme to help them learn the tenets of the Resol'nare:

Ba'jur, beskar'gam,
Ara'nov, aliit,
Mando'a bal Mand'alor—
An vencuyan mhi.

It is translated in Basic as:

Education and armor,
Self-defense, our tribe,
Our language, our leader—
All help us survive.
