Confederation of Tuareg groups found in the Ahaggar massif; the mountains of Atakor, Immidir, and Tefedest; and the surrounding lowlands of southern Algeria. Certain tribes of the Kel Ahaggar make the plains of Tamesna their home, between the massifs of Aïr and Adrar-n-Iforas, particularly In Abangerit and Teguidda-n-Tesemt, Niger. The Kel Ahaggar and Kel Ajjer are usually referred to as the Northern Tuareg, while the remaining groups comprise the Southern Tuareg.
