Sayed Gul Kalash  


Sayed Gul Kalash works to preserve her critically endangered Kalash culture and language in a remote region of Pakistan. Her archaeological finds, museum work, and sustainable tourism efforts raise awareness for one of the oldest and most unique cultures surviving today.

One of the worlds only cultures to survive in its original form for 3,000 years now numbers only about 3,500 people. Whether it endures, or vanishes, rests largely on the shoulders of one woman.

Sayed Gul Kalash, a member of the indigenous community herself, works to keep traditional beliefs, language, dress, religion, art forms, and other elements of Kalash heritage alive. As a compelling representative of a culture under threat, she focuses her efforts not only on preserving the past, but also on improving the present and safeguarding the future.
