- Poe: "What is this?"
- C-3PO: "The Aki-Aki Festival of the Ancestors! Oh! This celebration occurs only once every forty-two years."
- Finn: "Well, that's lucky."
- C-3PO: "Lucky indeed! This festival is known for both its colorful kites and its delectable sweets."
- ―C-3PO to Poe Dameron, Finn, Rey, and Chewbacca[src]
The Aki-Aki were a sentient species native to the desert planet Pasaana. They were generally peaceful and hospitable, and welcomed offworlders to their planet. The Aki-Aki maintained a pre-starflight level of civilization, but did adopt a number of advanced tools to aid in their life on Pasaana. Aki-Aki history was not always peaceful, however; their species faced strife between scattered clans, though they eventually worked together to survive Pasaana's harsh climate.
