The Tuareg are an Islamic African people. They are classified as seminomadic and they travel with their herds on a seasonal basis but also have a home area where they grow some food crops. The Tuareg are best known for the men's practice of veiling their faces with a blue cloth dyed with indigo. Early travelers' accounts often referred to them as the "Blue Men" of the Sahara Desert. There are around one million.
