Mideast Morocco Atlas Berbers Photo Essay

In this Monday, Feb. 1, 2016 photo, Amazigh boys play football underneath the High Atlas mountains, near Ouarzazate, central Morocco. Across North Africa, the Berbers number about 50 million. At least 15 million Moroccans are Amazigh, divided into different groups according to their dialects. While they speak the native Amazigh language of Tamazight, which has a large number of dialects and recently gained recognition as an official language in Morocco, many have adopted Arabic as part of a long process of Arabization and Islamization.
