Tusken Raiders (Second Human Empire: ?), less formally referred to as Sand People or simply as Tuskens, were a culture of nomadic, primitive sentients indigenous to Tatooine, where they were often hostile to local settlers. The term Sand People was given to them due to their existence in the desert, and was in use from at least around 4000 BBY; but the more formal name of Tusken Raiders was acquired much later, due to a period of concerted attacks on the settlement at Fort Tusken. Although this name is often used as a common term for the race, it actually refers only to the participants of the attack on the settlement. The Tusken are hostile to any sentient species in contact (sourced from Anya Oliwa's Essential Guide to Multiversal Species)
