Puristan Shah, 10
Rumbur Valley, Pakistan

Puristan Shah was the first person I met when I arrived in the valley where the Kalash reside. Using sign language he introduced himself and immediately began to show me around and introduce me to his family and friends. Everyone was very open and friendly. Later my interpreter told me that there is virtually no crime among the Kalash. In the rare event that someone should steal or show disrespect for the culture, they are confronted by the whole village and made to provide a male goat to be sacrificed and eaten at a community gathering.
