She Of The Tents...
Tin-Hinan or Tamnugalt as she is called by the native Amazigh in Azawad and surrounding regions (Mali, Nigeria, Libya and Algeria) means in Tamazight “she of the tents” and “president” She was considered the spiritual mother of the Touareg tribes. Thus, the name Tin-Hinan is interpreted as “mother of the tribe” or “queen of the camp.” She played a great role in protecting her tribes as she was always considered the symbol of social, political, and spiritual stability of Touareg tribes. The body of the queen Tin-Hinan is currently in the Bardo Museum in Algiers.
