The Tuareg, semi-nomadic desert dwellers of the Sahara, have long piqued the curiosity of Westerners. Known commonly as "the blue people", because of their indigo turbans that stain their skin, the Tuareg are master craftsmen of jewelry and other fineries. A new Tuareg exhibit at the Fowler will offer a glance into the lives and crafts of these fabled people.
