Polytheistic Kalash Tribe Celebrates Spring In Remote Mountains

RUMBUR, PAKISTAN - MAY 15: Abi Gul, age 15, grand daughter of Bibi Kai, of the polytheistic Kalash tribe, stands in the doorway of her extended family home May 15, 2008 in the remote Chitral village of Rumbur in northwest Pakistan. The Kalash people, who number about 4,000, claim to be descendants of Alexander the Great and worship their own gods. The tiny minority group, in a Muslim nation of more than 165 million people, holds the annual Joshi spring festival to bring good crops and honey to its agricultural communities. The Kalash are connected to the rest of Pakistan by a single road, and lack phone service. (Photo by John Moore/Getty Images)
