Candace Scharsu Photography -  The Tuaregs

Proud nomads, light-skinned, blue-eyed, wearing gandouras to the ground, veils revealing only eyes; speculated to be Nubians, or Hamites from Egypt, expelled by Arabs in the 8th century.      -- French Missionary, Charles De Foucauld 1905

Fairness and blue eyes left with miscegenation, but traditions, the Tamahaq language, and their loathing for Arabs remained.      -- Candace Scharsu 2006
