19. Kalash people (the Kalasha)
Small-numbered peoples, who live in the north of Pakistan, in the Hindu Kush mountains, are probably the “whitest” peoples of Asia. Disputes about the Kalasha have never ended. The people themselves insist on their connection to Alexander the Great. Their language is phonologically atypical, it has a basic structure of Sanscrit. Despite the attempts of islamization many Kalash people stick to polytheism.
