The Tuareg are an ancient Saharan group of people that has existed for over 2000 years. These semi-nomadic and pastoralist people occupy and operate in the sub-Saharan nations like Algeria, Niger, Burkina Faso, Mali and Libya. They are known for playing a role in the trans-Saharan caravan trade and breeding livestock. The Tuareg people speak the Tamasheq language, whose origin is in North Africa. They also write using an ancient hieroglyphic script called Tifinagh: roots from Berber. Most of them are Muslims.
Over the years, the Tuareg have tried to preserve their culture in beliefs, traditions, rituals, magical and mystical views, and religious views by passing them down through the generations. They have enshrined most of them in the local crafts in; magical and mystical forms and symbols by producing their jewels, amulets, talismans, and other commodities. They have extensively used silver, metals, wood, leather, and stone to make these items in designs that are very decorative and with religious or magical connotations and function.
