Living near the Pakistan-Afghan border is a tribe known as the Kalasha. Said to be one of the last groups in western Asia keeping hold of their aboriginal culture, they speak a language with very ancient features, Dardic.

This photo of a Kalasha girl was taken in 1981 by famous photographer Steve McCurry.
