Surviving in one of the most pitiless and inhospitable terrains on earth, they controlled the lucrative caravan trading routes until nineteenth- and twentieth-century colonization followed by twenty-first century global politics and the rise of political Islam, jihadism and terrorism fragmented their society and way of life. And yet the unique and distinctive Tuareg culture, with its ancient Tifinagh script and traditions of proverbs, poetry and song and strict behavioural codes, survives despite pressures on a proud race."@en ;
