Tuareg Cross Necklaces

Tuareg Crosses of Niger:  La Croix du Niger
There are 21 Tuareg Crosses, each of which indicates a location, a Tuareg village or region. The word "Cross" is a term attributed by Europeans and is totally unrelated to the Tuareg Language or to a Christian cross. The Cross of Agadez is the most famous among the 21 emblems of the Tuareg.
