Location of Tchin-Tabaraden in Niger

Tchin-Tabaraden (var. Tchintabaraden, Tchin-Tabaradene) is a town and Commune located in the Azawagh area of Niger, in the north of the Tahoua Region.[1] It is the capital of the Region's Tchin-Tabaraden Department. It is the market center for the Iwillimidan Tuareg. The first insurrectionist movement for the autonomy of Tenere, the Tuareg region in central-north and western Niger, began here and in nearby Abalagh in 1985. In the neighboring oasis of In-Gall, the Cure Salee, or "the festival of the nomads", is held annually.

The name means place of the young women/girls due to the former practice of all of the young women and girls going to the large well in town to draw water daily. With running water, this is no longer a needed ritual.
