What if, thousands of years before the battle of Yavin, the Jedi (Yoda’s race) were the first light side force wielders in the galaxy. Or even just the first force users in general. Then they explored the rest of the galaxy to find beings like them to train, thus starting the Jedi order.
In this manner, can any race be a Jedi?
