Our Participation in the Global Revival Of Our Culture
ACAA participates globally in the revival of the Amazigh culture. The practice of Amazigh language and culture has been seriously diminished by long periods of non-recognition in North African countries, officially identified as Arab and where Arabic is the only recognized and official language, and by emigration itself.
