In Star Wars, the Bakurans were humans inhabiting the planet Bakura. Bakurans developed a distinct culture due to their isolated location and their lack of contact with any nonhuman beings besides the Kurtzen natives.
The Bakurans descended from the Bakuran Mining Corporation colonists who arrived at the planet around 150 BBY. They soon broke away from the corporate control and created their own senate and elected a Prime Minister. The leader of the 150 BBY Bakuran Mining Corporation expedition, Deredith Arden's descendants were the leaders of the Bakurian government.
