Although mostly primitive in appearance, Ewoks are a race of inventive hunters and gatherers. Using all the materials from their forested environment on Endor, they are able to construct entire villages high in the trees, safely out of reach from predators below. At an early age, a great sense of community is instilled in them with the belief that their first concern should be the well-being of their tribe. They are also deeply spiritual, with each tribe led by a shaman. During the Battle of Endor, they assist the Rebel Alliance in defeating the Imperial forces with their clever tactics and makeshift weaponry.
