Socio cultural Role

The tent (Al Khayma) is considered as the first social unity in the Sahrawi society.

It is not only a spatial unity for living but constitutes also all relationships linking all family members.

Accordingly, the tent is all concrete relations within the same family, a name referring to the accommodation traditionally built by Sahrawi men using camel hairs and sheep wool.
