Why are so many twileks slaves?

I couldn't find the info for this on the star wars wiki anywhere.

I get the feeling George Lucas just made the females into slave dancers because they had an exotic look to them. I don't see why twileks would make better slaves then any other race. In fact they are kind of weak looking. Couldn't people make better slaves out of strong species like wookies or nikto?

Any ideas?

Ryloth the homeworld of the Twi-Leks was simply a hub of slave trade way back in 10,000 BBY when the Republic first found the planet and it always has been.

Twi'leks are not exactly weak. But the reason Twi'lek females are slaves is due to the Twi'lek culture. They make great dancers, sex slaves and servants. Twis aren't used for back breaking slave labor like Wookies are. Yes, Wookies have been taken as slaves also. Any male Twi'lek slaves would be used for manual labor as well.

It's simple really. Twileks are a tolerant species in general. The rare few that stand against opression and slavery are quickly put down. The twilek people don't really have the means to stop a slave ring even if they tried. That's my view. There really is no information on this subject.
