Unique and beautiful Berber tribal women
The indigenous people of North Africa are not Negroid Africans and even the Arabs, but the people, called Berbers. Even more surprising is the fact that these people are representatives of the White Race, who had been subject to forced Islamization in the 7th century AD. Many Berbers are unaware that they are called Berbers, because they were given such name by other people, supposedly by the Romans. Berbers come from the Greek barbaros, or the Latin barbarus – ‘Barbarian’. Since the Greeks, and after them the Romans, called all the people, whose culture and language they did not understand – Barbarians. Now Berbers are called many Berber tribes that live throughout North Africa, from Egypt in the east to the Atlantic Ocean in the west, and the Sudan in the south to the Mediterranean Sea in the north, as well as in other countries, including European ones. The number of Berbers in the world is estimated variously – from 20 to 40 million.
