Chief Chirpa of the Ewoks is sharing this year's Festival of Love with the entire galaxy! Visit the forest moon of Endor or the city of Theed beginning February 13 to join the celebration of love with the Ewok tribe.
Ewoks and the Festival of Love
Ewoks are small creatures that are native to the forest moon of Endor. The trees of the forest provide not only physical shelter to the Ewoks, but also give the tribe a sense of protection as the trees watch over them.
The Ewoks live in harmony with nature and forage for food in the lush vegetation. Camby berries are given freely during the Festival of Love, celebrated once a year to honor the kinship and love between tribe members. During the festival, the Ewoks present this gift of their hard-earned food to other members of the tribe to demonstrate trust and acceptance.
As the Ewoks celebrate the Festival of Love, tribe members prepare meals, dance, and sing traditional songs, such as this ancestral chant often heard drifting through the treetops of the forest moon:
Dugun duca lula ludia nuna, dounga, luna nudia!
Even though the Ewoks live in fiercely guarded tribes, they treat outsiders with warmth. Ewoks are curious by nature, so the chief has opened the Festival of Love to invite outsiders to partake in the festivities.
Celebrate the Love
News of the Galactic Civil War has not yet reached their homeland, so the good-natured creatures are equally welcoming to Rebels and Imperials alike.
Queen Kylantha has extended an invitation to the tribe to visit Naboo, so Chief Chirpa has ventured to Theed with the tribal shaman Logray to share their rich culture with the galaxy. Visitors interacting with the Ewok tribe during the festival can try their hand at speaking the Ewok language to put the Chief at ease.
Although Logray is suspicious of outsiders, the medicine man is willing to part with some of the Ewok foodstuffs. Logray offers the traditional Festival of Love cuisine, camby berries and chak juice, but because he does not yet fully trust outsiders, festival-goers must pay a small price. The credits are well-spent, however, as this exquisite fare offers beneficial effects.
Chak juice is a beverage made from chak, a substance that comes from the Great Tree in the forest of Endor. The chak juice is not just tasty; it also increases damage and reduces action cost when consumed.
Camby berries, also offered for a small sum of credits, are gathered from the cambylictus trees scattered across the forest moon. The camby berries are rather tart, so dip the fruit into the chocolate fountain nearby to add more taste and sweet benefits. These sweetened berries boost movement speed and experience gained - so indulge and enjoy!
