The Kurakakun are the indigenous people of the Orange Mountains of central Tol Hith.
One of the original four tribes of Tol Hith, they settled in the fertile valleys amongst the orange-rocked mountains in the center of the island. The mazelike "stone forest" of the Orange Mountains proved a formidable defense against the Tuktani and Gizri who often attacked them. By the coming of the Rangers of the South, they had built a small city, Qusquu, within their stone maze.
The Rangers of the South helped them and the Sarpas defeat their enemy the Tuktani, and soon afterwards the Kurakakun joined the confederation. They mixed heavily into their culture, and many famous rangers of the South were of Kurakakun ancestry.
