TUAREG: PEOPLE OF THE VEIL

Horniman Museum & Gardens, 100 London Rd, Forest Hill, London, SE23 3PQ

From: Sat 27 Mar 2010 - Until: Sun 27 Feb 2011

Tuareg: People of the Veil provides a fascinating insight into the culture of the Tuareg people through the exploration of clothing and jewellery. Ornate amulets, veils and slippers are set within their social and historical context to illuminate their significance to Tuareg culture.

The Tuareg are a diverse group of people from north west Africa, spread across Algeria, Libya, Niger, Mali and Burkina Faso. Despite regional differences, the Tuareg share the same language, religious beliefs and a similar mode of dress. The important role dress plays in Tuareg identity is demonstrated by one of the names the Tuareg call themselves: Kel Tagelmust - People of the Veil.
