Mezail Shah 7, Rafiulla 9
Rumbur Valley, Pakistan

Mezail Shah was stung near his eye while taking care of his honeybees. Among the Kalash only the men are allowed to harvest and eat honey. In this patriarchal society, the sacred realm is associated with men and goats. The bees are believed to be male and the all male beehive is not allowed to be contaminated by women. Women are also not allowed to eat the meat of a male goat or visit the ‘pure realm’ of the high pastures where the goats are grazed in the summer months.
