Berber

Introduction

The term “Berber” is often used to refer to the Amazigh, the Indigenous Peoples of Northwest Africa. However, given the origins of the word, it is considered to be offensive. The word is derived from the Roman word for “barbarian”. During the days of the Roman Empire, the word was applied to anyone who did not speak Latin.
