- "Rose again they did, during the Fluwhaka revolt. An adventure for me, as a new Padawan it was."
- ―Yoda's comment on the Black Knights in The Jedi Path: A Manual for Students of the Force
The Fluwhaka revolt occurred during the last millennium of the Galactic Republic, at some point after 896 BBY. Among the combatants were the reformed Black Knights, a faction of dark side Force-users who had risen again several times since their initial defeat by the Jedi early in the New Sith Wars. The uprising caught the attention of the Jedi Order, resulting in the participation of Yoda—who was at the time a newly chosen Padawan—in the conflict. Having ascended to the rank of Grand Master by 115 BBY, he reviewed the Jedi trainee guidebook The Jedi Path: A Manual for Students of the Force for future editions that year and made a notation about the Black Knights' resurgence during the Fluwhaka revolt, reminiscing it to have been an adventure for him.
Behind the scenes
The Fluwhaka revolt was first mentioned in The Jedi Path: A Manual for Students of the Force, a reference book written by Daniel Wallace and published in 2010. While a planet named Fluwhaka exists in the Star Wars universe, its connection to the Fluwhaka revolt was not made explicit in The Jedi Path, nor does the book establish the outcome of the conflict.

Notes and references
- Since Yoda participated in the conflict, it must have taken place after his birth in 896 BBY. Yoda's birth year has been confirmed in e.g. Jedi vs. Sith: The Essential Guide to the Force, p. xix (Time Line).
