I dunno if anyone noticed this (and I'm NOT about to read that 5 pages of posts in EP2) but they subtly explained why the Tuskeins were afraid of Obi-Wan in EP4 A New Hope. IN THE BEGINNING I'm talking about...ya rubes. When he first meets Luke. I always just figured they were scared of him cause he was a Jedi but that really didn't make sense. Anakin slaughtering a whole tribe as a Jedi does. Natch.

I thought Obi-Wan's explanation was that they were easily frightened, but compensated by coming back in bigger numbers. Are the Sand People supposed to be the same people as these Raiders?

Yeah, Tusken Raiders = The Sand People. Also, Obi-Wan made that frightening noise (the sound of a Krayt Dragon, evil lizard of the desert on Tatooine) that made the sand people run away.

Unless one of them survived how would any of the other Tuskins know what killed the other tribe? Anakin wiped them out and dead [sand] men tell no tales. If any Tuskens found the camp before the various scavenger animals all they would find would be a mass of limbs. I'm going with the Krayt Dragon howl as the reason Obi scared them.

The Krayt Dragon noise is correct. When Obi-Wan appears, you can hear a loud noise/howl. The Krayt Dragon is a huge lizard. In fact, on one of the sand dunes shortly after C3PO & R2 land on Tatooine, you can see a skeleton behind C3PO.

I saw it on the BIG SCREEN at work. Wow. Epic is scope and scale...tremendous. And yes, all the Raiders were killed, so they wouldn't know.
