FoodThe Bedouin mainly ate one meal a day, which consisted of dry dates and camel milk. Only on special occasions were they to have meat and most other foods consisted or a little water and flour. This is how their bread is made.

The Bedouin Tribe

MarraigeMarraige is taken very seriously in the Bedouin tribe. men are not aloud to touch even accidently unless they are very closely related. An engagement has to last for about a year, and the two ingaged rarely get to talk alone, (without family).The Bedouin people have right to choose who they marry except love is thought to be a feeble reason for marraige.

Only 5% of the Bedouin people are still nomadic but some in Simai are still nomadic.

Their Lifestyle

The lifestyle for the Bedouin people in the Sahara desert is extremely hard.They work every day to keep living. Most of their work involves sitting all day and watching their flocks and herds grazing. Everyone has a different job to do everyday. Men take out their camels in the morning and the women and children look after the sheep and goats. Also, the girls and small children spend parts of their time collecting brushwoods for fire at night and bring it home in bundles.

Bedouin people live in the deserts of North Africa and the Middle East. They call themselves the people of the tent.

ClothingBedouin clothing is adapted for desert life. They wear loose flowing clothing that covers the skin so as to prevent heat stroke and sun burn, but allowing air to still flow around the body so that it can be cooled in the heat. The Keffiyeh is a large square coth folded in half so that it forms a triangle. This is then placed on the head and held in place with a woven cord called an Agal. This is a iconic symbol of the Bedouin, as it helps shade them from the sun, allows air to flow freely around the head, but also shades the face, and can be wrapped around the nose and mouth in case of a dust storm. They are usually coloured red and white, black and white, or just plain white.
