The Blue People: Tuareg Steeze

Yet another group of gorgeous, captivating people. The Tuareg are a nomadic Berber people found mostly in the Saharan interior of North Africa. Traditionally, the women do not wear the veil, whereas the men do. The indigo men's face coverings are believed to ward off evil spirits. The Tuareg are sometimes called "The Blue People" since the indigo pigments of their veils and robes stained their skin dark blue.
