Berbers, or Amazighs, (Berber languagesⵉⵎⴰⵣⵉⵖⵏ, ⵎⵣⵗⵏromanized: Imaziɣen; singular: Amaziɣⴰⵎⴰⵣⵉⵖ ⵎⵣⵗ) are an ethnicity of several nations mostly indigenous to North Africa and some northern parts of West Africa.

Berbers mostly live in MoroccoAlgeriaTunisiaLibyaMauritania, northern Mali, northern Niger, and a small part of western Egypt.

Berber nations are distributed over an area stretching from the Atlantic Ocean to the Siwa Oasis in Egypt and from the Mediterranean Sea to the Niger River in West Africa. Historically, Berber nations spoke the Berber language, which is a branch of the Afroasiatic language family. The Berbers of Algeria were independent of outside control during the period of Ottoman Empire rule in North Africa. They lived primarily in three different Nations: the Kingdom of Ait AbbasKingdom of Kuku, and the principality of Aït Jubar.[30] The Kingdom of Ait Abbas is a Berber nation of North Africa, controlling Lesser Kabylie and its surroundings from the sixteenth century to the nineteenth century. in the Spanish historiography as “reino de Labes”;[31][full citation needed]  Its capital was the Kalâa of Ait Abbas, an impregnable citadel in the Biban mountain range.

There are about 32 million Berbers in North Africa who still speak the Berber language,[3] most living in MoroccoAlgeriaLibyaTunisia, northern Mali, and northern Niger.[4] Smaller Berber-speaking populations are also found in MauritaniaBurkina Faso and Egypt‘s Siwa town. The majority of North Africa’s population west of Egypt is believed to be Berber in ethnic origin, although due to Arabization and Islamization some ethnic Berbers identify as Arabized Berbers.[32] There are large immigrant Berber communities living in FranceSpainCanadaBelgium, the NetherlandsUnited KingdomItaly and other countries of Europe.[3
