Berber Americans, American Berbers or Amazigh Americans, are Americans of Berber (or Amazigh) descent. Although the majority of the population of the Maghreb (in the North Africa) is of Arabized Berber descent, only 1,327 people declared Berber ancestry in the 2000 US Census. People of Berber origin in United States have created several associations with goal of maintaining and strengthening their language and culture, such as the Amazigh Cultural Association in America (ACAA),[2] The United Amazigh Algerian (UAAA),[3] The Amazigh American Association of Washington, DC., and the Boston Amazigh Community.
