museum dedicated to
the Bedouin culture
may seem like a con-
tradiction in terms, for how
does one preserve a nomadic
way of life which is, by defini-
tion, impermanent?
Nevertheless, in strikingly
realistic exhibits, the fast-
disappearing culture of this
resilient desert people is be-
ing preserved in the Museum
for Bedouin Culture in the
northern Negev.
The museum, the only one
of its kind in the world,
recreates the rich and colorful
heritage of a people who
migrated from Arabia to this
region over 600 years ago.
Theirs is also a vanishing
heritage, for the realities of
life in a modern political state
have meant that the Bedouin
are slowly moving from goat-
skin tents to modern homes.
In a deliberate, and sometime
controversial policy, the
Israeli government has for
many years offered monetary
and land compensation to
Bedouin who choose to settle
in specially-built townships.
The inexorable process of ur-
banization — or sedenteriza-
tion, as it is more often call-
ed — may well mark the end
of the Bedouins' nomadic
culture.
Perched on a hilltop over-
looking Kibbutz Lahav and
the surrounding desert, the
museum hosts over 5,000
visitors each month. Tours
are conducted in Hebrew,
English and Arabic and many
of the visitors are themselves
Bedouin.
The exhibits are divided in-
to two distinct sections — one
on the Bedouin of the Negev
and the other the Bedouin of
the Sinai. Each has its own
life-style, dictated by differing
available resources.
