The Kalash (کالاش), also called Waigali or Wai are a Dardic Indo-Aryan indigenous people residing in the Chitral District of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan. They speak the Kalasha language, from the Dardic family of the Indo-Aryan branch. They are considered unique among the peoples of Pakistan. They are also considered to be Pakistan's smallest ethnoreligious group practicing a religion which some scholars characterize as a form of animism and other academics as "a form of ancient Hinduism".
