Background
Pied-Noir (Black-Foot), plural Pieds-Noirs, is a term referring to French citizens who lived in French Algeria before independence. Specifically, Pieds-Noirs include those of European settlers descent from France or other European countries (such as Spain, Italy & Malta), who were born in Algeria. From the French invasion on 18 June 1830 until its independence, Algeria was administratively part of France.

The Pieds-Noirs are known in reference to the Algerian War that opposed Algerian nationalist groups such as the Front de Liberation Nationale (FLN) and Mouvement national algerien (MNA) against the colonial French rule massively supported by the Pieds-Noirs. The roots of the conflict reside in political and economic inequalities perceived as an "alienation" from the French rule as well as a demand for a leading position for the Berber, Arab and Islamic cultures and rules existing before the French conquest. The conflict contributed to the fall of the French Fourth Republic and the mass migration of Algerian Europeans and Jews to France.

After Algeria became independent in 1962, about 800,000 Pieds-Noirs of French nationality were evacuated to mainland France while about 200,000 chose to remain in Algeria. They were still 100,000 in 1965 and 50,000 by the end of the sixties. Upon arriving, they suffered ostracism from the Left for their perceived exploitation of native Muslims and for having caused the war, thus the political turmoil surrounding the collapse of the French Fourth Republic. In popular culture, the community is often represented as feeling removed from French culture while longing for Algeria. Thus, the recent history of the pieds-noirs has been imprinted with a theme of double alienation from both their native homeland and their adopted land.
