Who are the caretakers?

The Caretakers were female Lanai who lived on Ahch-To and attended to the ancient Jedi village on the planet, which housed the first Jedi Temple.[1] They considered it their religious duty to maintain the temple island’s ancient structures and to provide care for those who travelled to their isolated world seeking truth.[2] They led simple, unassuming lives and wore white robes with matching headdresses. The Caretakers were led by their matron, Alcida-Auka.
