Amazighs are very likely the direct descendants of the Mesolithic and Neolithic Caspian populations that live between 8000 and 2700 BC in North Africa. The reason why there are many Amazigh groups that are quite different from each other is the vast extent of the North African territory where they have live for millennia. Each region has its specific geographical characteristics imposing therefore a specific lifestyle. That's why the northern regions of North Africa that have a Mediterranean climate with regular seasons has a sedentary population, while hotter and arid regions in the High Plateaus and the Sahara have nomadic populations.

The Amazighs, indigenous to North Africa, have a rich and ancient culture. Their traditional crafts, including jewellery, pottery, weaving, and henna art, hold great value and have been passed down for generations.

The heaviest concentration of Amazighs speakers is found in Morocco. Major Amazigh languages include Tashelhit (Tashelhiyt, Tashelhait, Shilha), Tarifit, Kabyle, Tamazight, and Tamahaq.

In North Africa, the The Amazighs religion was based on Phoenician and Punic deities, with a god (Baal) and a goddess (Tanit).
