Kalash Tribe of Pakistan
I wonder if this is the tribe we heard of while in Iran. A friend had visited a tribe living up in the mountains in Pakistan. They were supposed to be of Zoroastrian descent – a couple of things that point to this are 1) wearing a Kusti type thread around their waist/arms, and 2) leaving their dead in a ‘ dry well’ on the side of the mountain.
This friend we had in Iran had visited these villages, and he said they were a very close knit community, not keen on having interaction with others. Of recent times, some youth have ventured into the cities around for education.
Would these be the people who are going to come out when the time’s right and resurrect Zoroastrianism?
Fascinating to say the least
