‘Free People’: Identity Formation Among the Imazighen in Morocco

Students: Milany Duarte and Alana Guzman
Mentor: Lisa Ho (OWU Office of International and Off-Campus Programs)

Our project objective was to study cultural and ethnic identity formation among the urban indigenous people of Morocco. The purpose of our project was to adequately represent the voices of the Amazigh community. To do so, we conducted interviews and discussions on the ways in which the Amazigh community experiences cultural, political, and linguistic marginalization. We captured personal stories of native Imazighen (plural of Amazigh) people and documented their experiences living in urban cities. We photographed traditional Imazighen living spaces and traditions.
