The Legacy of the Tuareg

The term 'Tuareg' encapsulates diverse groups bound by a shared language and history. Their legacy in trans-Saharan trade, marked by camel caravans, persisted until the 20th century when modern transportation took precedence. The journey of goods shifted from the Sahara's edge to European shores via trains. With roots tracing back to northern Africa, as documented by Herodotus, the Tuaregs, over centuries, migrated southwards. Today, they predominantly reside in cities near the Sahara, the ancient trading hubs of western Africa. While influenced by Islam, they maintain a distinct identity, separate from Arabic culture.
