The Aït Baamrane is a confederation of Berber tribes from Southern Morocco and is also the name of the region in which they are historically settled. They are located south of Tiznit, from the plain of which they are separated by a series of reliefs that go from the Atlas to the sea.
The Imazighen (singular Amazigh) also known as the Berbers are among the original peoples of North Africa. Their myths, legends and history span 9,000 years, back to the Proto-Mediterraneans. They have achieved unity by keeping up their unique language and culture which are, like their land, both African and Mediterranean.
