In Return of the Jedi the Ewoks join the Rebels in the fight against the Empire. Into the battle the Ewoks bring a multitude of weapons: stone axes, bow and arrows, hang gliders, swinging log smashers and catapults, to name a few. Why did the Ewoks have all this equipment, seemingly lying around?
Had the Ewoks already been planning an attack against the Imperials when the Rebels landed? Or do Ewok tribes wage war against each other regularly, and all the weapons we see were left over from the last one, or in preparation of the next one?
The attack against the Death Star 2 appears to take place over a relatively short period of time, so it seems unlikely that the Rebels had assisted in constructing them, but perhaps the movie didn't fully portray the time that had passed?
Since the Ewoks appear to live in a very peaceful forest that is relatively devoid of animal life, has any reason ever been given for the Ewoks having all those tools of war?
