Artisan: Tuareg peoples, Africa

Artisan Tuareg peoples, Africa

Tuareg is a term used to identify numerous groups of nomadic peoples of the Sahara Desert who share a common language and history.

The Tuareg are matrilineal, meaning that issues such as inheritance and nobility are passed down through the mother's side. Because of this, Tuareg women hold unusually autonomous positions in their society. Since they travel much of the year, the Tuareg don't carry many large possessions, instead concentrating the majority of their wealth into small items such as jewelry.

For millennia, Tuareg caravans have crossed the Sahara, connecting the Mediterranean coast of Africa to great trade centers on the southern edge of the desert. The Tuareg people continue to make jewelry and crafts in much the same way that they have for generations.
