A recent arrival, Abdelkader Hamouchi, speaks of his life in Morocco. A Berber by birth, he speaks of this separate ethnic group’s language and culture. The Berbers, or the Amidir (Free Men), as they call themselves, were in Morocco centuries before the Arabic-speaking colonizers arrived.
He is now in the USA looking for work and observing life here.
