The Pakuni are a race of humanoid-like primates indigenous to the Land of the Lost. They appeared in the first two seasons of Land of the Lost as well in variant forms in two reboots.


The Pakuni (singular: Paku) are a primate species similar to the extinct hominid Paranthropus of the Earth's Ice Age. They have edged out foreheads and travel hunched over, often speaking a mono-syllabic language similar in aspects to the aborigine tribes of Earth. They are covered in hair with human-like faces except with a flatter nose.


The Pakuni have their own language and go through a ritual every second day of the third moon cycle. The ritual is to toss in a vegetable to the God, a Pylon where then they get a shopping cart from Earth and a lot of food. Another ritual is the passage to manhood. The child Pakuni will have to steal an egg from a Dinosaur, usually Big Alice in The Lost City. The only weapons they have is a bag of rocks that momentarily distract the dinosaur and a staff.

The Pakuni are easily scared. They have been known to be scared of most dinosaurs except babies. Also the Pakuni are stubborn and don't learn easily. The Pakuni have also been known to be loyal if they are bribed.


The Pakuni usually live in an area of dense jungle. The Pakuni usually have two rocks, one for their painting of god, and another for their safety. Some Pakuni have adapted to live in places like the Altrusian mountains and some on a desert like the High Bluff.


There are only three known Pakuni. They are Cha-Ka, Ta and Sa. Ta is the male Pakuni and is the adult. He is not to be questioned. Sa, the female Pakuni is completely devoted to her husband. The female Pakuni normally is less intelligent and can normally not speak. Cha-Ka is the child Pakuni. He is supposed to be a learner from both his parents and not ask questions. Cha-Ka however is not like that and is devoted to helping the Marshall's.

2009 VersionEdit
