Mando'ade are nothing without our culture, and everything with it. Without our culture, our people would have died out along with the Taung. Recognizing this, the Mando'ade reafirm the ancient position that adherance to Mando'ade culture is what dictates whether one is Mando'ad or Dar'manda.
The most important aspect of Mando'ade culture is the Resol'nare, which translates to Basic as the "Six Actions" or "Six Tenets." The Resol'nare are:
Mando'a bal Mand'alor-
An vencuyan mhi.
Which translates to basic as
Our language, our leader-
All help us survive.
These simple tenets are what makes one a Mando'ad, and nothing else.
Verd ori'shya beskar'gam, a Mando'ad naas ures Resol'nare.
Armour. Beskar'gam is the most outward display of being a Mando. Beskar'gam also says a great deal about its owner. While most aruetiise see identical sets of armour varying only in colour, each set of Beskar'gam is actually quite unique and tailored to suit the comforts, fighiting styles, and abilities of its owner.
In addition to wearing the armour, Mando'ade are expect to be able to care for it and keep it in peak condition, ready for combat at a moment's notice.
Language. Although some may disagree, Mando'a is extremely important. It sets us apart from the aruetiise and it strengthens our bonds with those who have come before. It serves as a form of universal communication and way to tie together what is otherwise an extremely diverse group of sentients. It also allows us to express ourselves; through proverbs, poetry, and song. Not only that but it allows us to express that which is indescribable in any other language. Because of Mando'a, your vode will understand you when you say shereshoy, even when no one else in the galaxy can.. It is Mando through and through.
