The name “Tuareg” will come from the Arabic “abandoned from the gods”. The Ahaggar desert is populated by Berber tribes, Imoûhagh (Tuareg) or Kel Ahaggar or Kel Tamâhaq. The Tuaregs are called Imouhagh and Tamahaq (coming from the term Iohagh, meaning: to be free, independent). The oral tradition has taught us numerous myths and legends concerning the origin of the various tribes of the Ahaggar. Indeed, the Tuaregs organized into tribes in the first millennium before the Christian era, formed territories ruled by the queen Tin Hinan. In the Neolithic, the region of Ahaggar was inhabited by Negro Africans sedentary populations (from Upper Egypt) who were practicing cattle breeding and also by white Berbers inhabitants.
