The ancient Klatooinians perceived the Hutts as demigods. The Hutts, never a Species to refuse the upper hand in any situation, used this false perception to their own advantage, convincing the Klatooinians to cast aside their ancient traditions, abandon their native language in favor of Huttese, and accept their place as indentured servants. Over the millennia, the Hutts have sheltered the Klatooinians and cultivated a society that is largely docile, obedient, illiterate, and isolated from the greater galactic community.
Exposure to technology has not diminished the Klatooinian predilection for simplicity. However, youthful Klatooinians often chafe at the conventional "Wisdom" of their elders, and despite the Hutts' efforts to shield their Klatooinian subjects from progressive ideas, many Klatooinians strive to break away from their Hutt overlords. The Hutts are wary of sedition but are often reluctant to quash seditious ideas completely for fear of forenting rebellion. So long as such incidents remain small and isolated, the Hutts are content to profit from their one-sided relationship with the Klatooinian people.
