Jango was Mandalore (leader) of the True Mandalorians (one of three factions). The other two factions are Death Watch and the Hippie-lorians. Jango was said that he wasn't a real mandalorian because the person who said that was part of Death Watch. FYI, Death Watch and the True Mandalorians were at war and always hated each other.

You don't have to be born as a mandalorian the same as your not born a Jedi or a Sith, your a force-sensitive. The original mandalorians weren't human to begin with, but now they are and the originals are extinct.

When you look at both the culture of Mandalorians and Jedi, they both are similar. You learn to fight. You learn tactics. You learn ranged combat, combat with a melee weapon, combat with your hands. You learn the history of your culture. You answer to one body of power (mandalore or the council). Both are physically fit. They both are warriors and should be treated as such.

It's to my understanding that Mandalore the Ultimate(? the guy Revan fought at the last battle) gave Revan, one of the Jedi's top duelists, a good fight. Jango Fett killed (I forget how many Jedi) at the battle of Galidraan (spelling?) where Dooku was present for the battle and would have let Jango go if it was just the two of them and no one else because of what Jango did to a bunch of jedi on the strike team. Boba Fett was leader of the Mandalorians during the Yuuzhan Vong war, his leadership kept them out of yuuzhan vong hands. Granted no jedi were involved and he may not have fought some of the alien invaders but he could have and yuuzhan vong gave the jedi a tough time in a fight.
