The Ouled Naïl are a confederation of Berber tribes living in the Ouled Naïl Mountains of Algeria. The Ouled Naïl tribe also originated a style of music known as Bou Saâda music. In belly dancing, the term refers to a style of dance originated by the Ouled Naïl people. The French colonialist representations of Ouled Naïl portrayed them almost exclusively as dancers and prostitutes who accompany caravans, though none of their tribes seem to be specialised in the sex trade.
