Algiers Algeria Culture
Algeria, also officially referred to as the People's Democratic Republic of Algeria, is a country in North Africa and one of the most populous countries in the Middle East. Berbers are officially born in Lzayer, the capital of the country and the second largest city after Algiers. The Algerian constitution defines Algeria as an "Islamic Arab country, Amazigh and Berber."
The Berbers are the largest ethnic group in Algeria, followed by the Turks, who, with only 25% of the total population, have significantly fewer inhabitants than the Berbers. Algerian Arabic is the language of about 25 people who speak Berber, but only 15% of Algerians call themselves "Berbers." About 99% or all of them are of Berne origin, while a small number of Algerians identify them as Arabs. The majority of Algerians are actually Berbers and not of Arab origin.
The huge mountain ranges of Aures and Nememcha cover the whole of northern and eastern Algeria and border the Tunisian border. The largest are the Kabyls, who live in the north and east of Algeria, near the borders with Tunisia and the Mediterranean. Algeria fell to the Ottoman Empire during World War II as a result of its disintegration from the French Empire.
As in most parts of the Arab world, men and women in Algeria generally make up the majority of the population and political and religious leaders. Although Islam is increasingly identifying with what many Algerians perceive as the continued Western imperialism of France and the United States in the Middle East and North Africa, the daily life of the average Algerian is permeating the cities and the country, with Islam identified as an integral part of their daily life, whether in the city or the countryside. The ubiquitous "Hirak" resonates with the Algerian people to defend Algeria, which is anchored in its history as it has been since its independence from the Ottoman Empire in 1917.
Islam is and was founded to create commonalities between believers, be it cultural or spiritual, and to create commonalities that are both cultural and spiritual. Islam has been and is a common ground for believers, in which it has created common points of contact with other religions and cultures, be they cultural, spiritual or both.
The culture of most countries, influenced by their past, and this is certainly true of Algeria. The provision of acceptance and hospitality is one of the most important aspects of Islam in Algeria, as in many other countries.
Algerian independence, sealed in 1962 by the Vian Agreement, allowed Algerians relative freedom of movement between Algeria and France. Around the same time, the French began to migrate to Algeria in large numbers, replacing Algerian culture with their own. In 1965, there were 500,000 Algerian citizens in France, and tens of thousands emigrated to the United States, supported by an Algerian statute that granted French citizenship to all Algerian men and introduced unrestricted passage from Algeria to France and vice versa. The Algerian diaspora in France has played a leading role in the development of the country's culture and economy, as well as in political and social life.
The Algerian painter Mohamed Racim Baya has tried to revive the prestigious Algerian past before French colonization, while at the same time contributing to the preservation of authentic values in Algeria. Young Algerians have asked themselves what it means to be "Algerian" or "French," and what role religious identity should or should not play in the political sphere. Algerian emigration and its impact on social and political life in France are based on the idea that Algerians are subversive, exploited by communists and their nationalist subversion. Social movements led by the Algerian community have challenged the notion that most descendants of Algerian migrants, even though they hold French citizenship (and thus citizenship), are treated differently from their ancestors.
Algerian women adhere to the idea that their identity as Muslim women is strongly linked to their identity as Algerian women. Algerian and discover what many Algerians already know: that they are an important part of the social, political and cultural life of their country.
Algeria, Africa's largest country, first conquered by the French almost 200 years ago, is home to some of the world's largest and most diverse populations of women and children. The conquest of Algeria was long and particularly violent, leading to the disappearance of about a third of the Algerian population.
After 132 years of French rule, Algeria became an independent republic, and an exodus of more than a million French settlers took place. The continuing Moroccan occupation has turned refugees into semi-permanent residents of Algeria, who have always supported their claimed independence.
The history of Algerian migration to France is reflected in the historical record of the emigration of Arabs and Berbers from Algeria to Europe and the Middle East. As the sociologist Abdelmalek Sayad describes the first phase, organized by a tightly controlled network at the time, it was largely temporary, providing vital economic support to impoverished villages and communities in Algeria. There has been a significant influx of colonised Arab Berber people from Morocco, Algeria's northern neighbour.
