Milkhunzar, 12
Bumbur Valley, Pakistan

Kalash tradition dictates that women retreat to a hut called the Bashali for five days during their menstral cycle. All births take place in the Bashali and only women are allowed inside. Milkhunzar had just returned home after her first stay in the Bashali. Immediately upon leaving the hut the women must wash in the river, change their clothes, and rebraid their hair before returning home. The tattoos on Milkhunzar’s face are made from mulberry juice and the eyeliner is finely ground goats horn that is mixed with water.
