Nardir Khan, 70+
Rumbur Valley, Pakistan

Nadir Khan was thirteen years old when he first started seeing spirits. Shortly afterward he lost his ability to speakā€”a condition that lasted two years. He said his mother and father were very frightened. Once his speech finally returned, he was able to forecast natural events like earthquakes and severe storms. In the Kalash culture a person comes to be recognized as a shaman mainly by their prophetic ability. It is considered that this gift often runs in families. Nadir Khan was able to comfort and mentor his son Marshella, when at fourteen, Marshella began hearing voices and seeing spirits.
