They occupy the territory called “afar”, a triangle of about 150 000 km2 in which the southern angle is marked by the city of Awash, the eastern angle by the city of Djibouti, and the northeastern angle by Dahlak Islands in Eritrea. The history of the Afar people has been lost in the mists of the time due to the indoctrination of Arab Islamists. Before Islamization, the Afar’s apparently already believed in a single God who could not have material representation. The Afar people speak Afar-Af, a language of Cushitic origin.
