|Died||October 17, 1908
El Aioun Sidi Mellouk, Morocco
|Known for||Leader of the tribe Awlad Sidi Shaykh|
Cheikh Bouamama was a leader of the tribe Awlad Sidi Shaykh. The resistance that he led in the southwest of Algeria and southeast of Morocco from 1881 to 1908 fell apart due to disagreements among the tribes. When Cheikh Bouamama retreated to Morocco in 1882 the French conquest of the south of Algeria was complete.
The Algerian filmmaker Benamar Bakhti made the 1983 film L'Épopée de Cheikh Bouamama ("The Epic of Cheikh Bouamama").
