The Kabyle are a Berber ethnic group native to Kabylie in the north of Algeria. They are the largest Berber-peaking population in Algeria and the second largest in Africa. Today, Kabyle tribes strives to strengthen their cultural identity and return to their cultural roots by perpetuating the production of their traditional pottery. This artisanal practice is passed on from mother to daughter: it takes on a distinctive feminine style that reveals the Kabyle women’s mentality, and gives a glimpse into their ancient practices, shrouded in secrecy within traditional society. Kabyle pottery’s typology and motifs are an independent semiotic system, reflective of an autochthonous culture, but also incorporating some foreign cultural influence.
