A Berber woman shows her hand, stained dark with henna for a wedding in the Moroccan town of Taarart, 2005. There are about 25 million Berbers—also known as Amazigh—living in Morocco and Algeria. They trace their roots back thousands of years before the seventh century Arab conquest that brought Islam to the region’s mountains and deserts.
