A Wookiee Chieftain

A Wookiee Chieftain, also known as a Wookiee Elder, was a high rank certifying a Wookiee with the ability to lead and to command troops on the battlefield. Chieftains also played roles with some government issues such as battles or war. They had notably the right to cancel the festivites of the Life Day, the most important of the Wookiee holidays.[1] At the time of the Galactic Republic, a council of venerated Elders accompanied Kashyyyk's representative to the Galactic Senate on Coruscant.[2]

Merumeru was a Chieftain at the time of the Battle of Kashyyyk and, at a mere 250 years old, was one of the youngest to have held the title.[3] About two decades later, during the Galactic Civil War, the female Wookiee Ovarra acted as a Chieftan.[4]
