Most frequently in English language usage, the term Sahrawi ("Saharaui") is usually used in reference to populations from the disputed Western Sahara territory, sometimes with a nationalist connotation.
The Sahrawis are ethnically a mix of Arabs and Berbers. They inhabit the westernmost Sahara desert, in the area present-day Mauritania, southern Morocco, Western Sahara and extreme southwestern Algeria. As with most Saharan peoples, the tribes culture is mixed, showing Arab, Berber, and black African characteristics.
Famous quotes containing the word people:
“The people who resent me do so because Im a woman, Im young, and Im a Bhutto. Well, the simple answer is, it doesnt matter that Im a woman, it doesnt matter that Im young, and its a matter of pride that Im a Bhutto.”
—Benazir Bhutto (b. 1953)
