The Tuareg live in an entirely different manner than us, in terms of culture, celebration and of course clothing, housing and nomadic customs. As mentioned previously, the tuareg were nomadic inhabitants of North Africa and have a rich lifestyle, especially tradition. Now, one really shocking fact is that the indigo veil is worn by the men but not the women, giving rise to the renowned name the Blue Man Of The Sahara, or Men of the Veil. Men begin to wear a veil when they are 25 years old. A traditional dance that is part of the nomadic Tuareg culture is the 'Tam Tam' where the men on camel tend to circle the women while they play drums and chant. Most Tuareg nowadays practice some degree of Islam, resulting from the teachings of the great prophet El Maghill from the early 16th century- they are not considered to be Arabic. They have preserved many Islamic-based rituals. Within the Tuareg group the women have a great freedom and participate in family and tribal traditions. Just a summary of the Tuareg tradition: The Tuareg are a semi-nomadic group of people who live mostly in the Northern Saharan Regions of Africa Before transport was invented, they were the major traders in the trans-Saharan caravan trade. Nowadays they mainly herd or economically employ animals for a livelihood.
