    About Tuareg:

    The name 'Tuareg' signifies a myriad of distinct groups unified by a shared language and historical background. Historically, Tuareg camel caravans were pivotal in the trans-Saharan trade, a legacy now taken over by modern transportation. Their roots trace back to Herodotus's records in northern Africa, from where many groups ventured south over millennia. Presently, a significant number of Tuaregs reside in cities near the Sahara, which were once bustling trade hubs of western Africa. While many have embraced Islam, they distinctly maintain their non-Arabic identity.

    Artistic Expressions:

    Tuareg artistry shines in jewelry, ornate leatherwork, metal saddle embellishments, and masterfully forged swords.

    Regions of Influence:

    Niger, Nigeria, Burkina Faso, Senegal, Mali.
