From The Art and Popular Culture Encyclopedia
The traditional Berber mythology is the ancient and native set of beliefs and deities developed by the Berber people in their historical land of North Africa. Many of Berber ancient beliefs were developed locally while some other ones were imported or influenced over time by contact with African mythology, the Egyptian religion, Phoenician mythology, Judaism, Iberian mythology, and the Hellenistic religion during antiquity. The most recent influence came from Islam, and its Arab mythology components, during the medieval period. Some of the Berber ancient beliefs still exist today subtly within the Berber popular cultural and tradition.
