"I adhere to the Resol'nare. The core of what it means to be Mandalorian. A sacred law giving us direction and purpose. Education and armor, self-defense, our tribe, our language, our leader—all help us survive. We must educate our children as Mandalorians, obey the commands of Mandalore, speak Mando'a and defend our clans."
Akaavi Spar — Gnome-speakernotesListen (file info)[src]

The Resol'nare, or Six Actions when translated from Mando'a into Galactic Basic Standard, were the central tenets of Mandalorian life. They consisted of wearing armor, speaking the language, defending yourself and your family, raising your children as Mandalorians, contributing to the clan's welfare, and when called upon by the Mand'alor, rallying to his cause[1]

Anyone who wished to be considered Mandalorian had to abide by these guidelines and live these actions daily. Mandalorians whom did not follow the Resol'nare were considered to be dar'manda—someone who was ignorant of their Mandalorian heritage. The status of dar'manda was widely feared within Mandalorian society due to the belief it meant they were soulless and had no place in the Manda, the Mandalorian afterlife.[1]

During the Mandalorian Wars, any and all non-Mandalorians were considered dar'manda and soulless from birth, until they joined the Mandalorians and lived by the Resol'nare. Groups of captured individuals would often be forcibly inducted into Mandalorian culture, and made to swear by the Resol'nare with or without their consent.[2]

Young Mandalorian children were taught a rhyme to help them learn the tenets of the Resol'nare.[3]

The Resol'nare is as follows: Ba'jur, Beskar'gam, Aliit, Ara'nov, Mando'a, and, Mand'alor

Behind the scenesEdit

The Resol'nare were developed by author Karen Traviss and first appeared in the Star Wars Insider article The Mandalorians: People and Culture.
