Chapter Summary

This chapter describes the radical changes Tamasheq society went through between the late 1960s and the 1990s and their political translations. The first part of the chapter presents a descriptive analysis of the economic, social and cultural changes that occurred between the late 1960s and 1990s. The second part describes the political reflexions within the Teshumara culture and the creation of the formalised nationalist movement that prepared for the 1990 rebellion. The Malian Kel Tamasheq generally refer to this movement as Tanekra, the uprising. The major legacy of Alfellaga was a number of young children who are now generally called 'the orphans' or 'the children of 1963'. Their experiences form the core of the chapter.

Keywords: Alfellaga; Kel Tamasheq; Tanekra; Teshumara
