Pakistan: Kalash girls in traditional robes- Black Kafirs

Kalash people are Dardic indigenous, speaking their own language and have their polytheistic religion. It is considered unique tribe among Indo-Aryan people of Pakistan, differing completely from surrounding ethinc groups. Their mythology and folklor resembles the ones of Ancient Greece, but traditions are closer to Indo-Iranians. Kalash culture is quite controversial compared to islamic in the rest of Pakistan. As well, they do not separate men from women in general,- women are even allowed to request change of a husband or complete elopement.
