"The Mother Jungle gives me strength."
―anonymous Ithorian Nature Priest[src]

The Ithorian Nature Priests were a group of Ithorians who had been selected to be allowed to walk within the holy ground of the Mother Jungle of their homeworld, thus being the Mother's chosen. They drew upon the Force to form a fellowship with the jungle, and they sometimes traveled to and from herd ships or other locations around the galaxy, but eventually, they were required to return to the jungles of Ithor and serve the Holy Mother.
