Description:The Sahara and Sahel have been the habitat for nomadic people for over 800 years. Only in the last century has their entire way of life been threatened. Most people envision nomads as men and women wandering over the desert on a camel. This lesson is designed to show students that these groups have an established political and social structure, pastoralist-based economy, and infuse art and religion into their everyday lives.
