The Ahaggaren Tuaregs- The Land Where Men Wear Veils

Somewhere in Algeria dwells the Ahaggaren Tuaregs, whose culture can be seen as strange when you see their men who wear veils almost all the time. The only time we find these men without their veils is when they are travelling or inside their family camps. The Ahaggaren Tuaregs become popular after Muammar Gaddafi found out that their men were resourceful and determined fighters.

The economy of the Tuareg revolves around trans-Saharan trade since they move goods to the north from some African cities close to the desert. The people travel in caravans and deal with luxury items. The Tuaregs are also responsible for trafficking humans from West Africa to other parts of the world.

At the age of 25, the Tuareg men are seen wearing veils. The veils are worn in such a way that the entire face is hidden except the eyes. The only time the veil can be removed is when they are with their families. The main reason for the veils is to help them stay safe from the Sahara sands.
