Tract, The

this was the Basic name, derived from an ancient Swoken term, of the vast cemetary established by the Swokes Swokes on their homeworld of Makem Te. In a ritual that was millennia in age, Swokes Swokes would place a ceremonial, two-meter-square tile in The Tract whenever an individual died. On top of this tile was a small stone pillar called a stela. By the time of the New Order, more than 1.2 trillion Swokes Swokes had been buried in The Tract, which covered more than seven percent of the surface on Makem Te. From space, The Tract appeared to be a northern polar ice cap, as was noted in the first scouting reports done on the Makem System by the Old Republic. This led to the addition of The Tract to the list of the galaxy's Twenty Wonders. The bodies of those Swokes Swokes who were represented in The Tract were actually chopped up or incinerated, and their remains were returned to the family as good luck charms. Only the stone tile was placed in The Tract. Many years later, The Tract was nearly destroyed when the Yuuzhan Vong launched their invasion of the galaxy. The alien invaders destroyed a refueling station that orbited Makem Te, in an effort to further hinder traffic flowing along the Perlemian Trade Route. The debris from the station crashed throughout the northern hemisphere of the planet, narrowing missing the land covered by The Tract.
