KALASH WOMAN Chitral, Khyber

A woman busy with her handiwork wears the distinctive attire of Kalash women: long black robes, embroidered with cowries and beads. The women style their hair in multiple braids and wear elaborate headgears. The Kalash are Pakistan's last pagan tribe and live in enclaves in the Rumbur, Bumboret and Birir Valleys of Chitral District in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa; they strictly adhere to their traditions and claim to be the descendants of Alexander the Great.
