The Pashtun people represent the world’s largest ethnic tribal group and are largely indigenous
to the desolate, mountainous region straddling the border of Pakistan and Afghanistan in a
region that is now recognized as the geographical safe haven for the Taliban and al-Qaeda. The
remoteness of parts of this area, as well as the scarcity of modern accoutrements, belies their
significance to current international security. Our purpose in this paper is to offer a significant
first step toward greater insight into the lives of the Pashtun people in the belief that U.S. and
international policy toward Afghanistan and Pakistan will benefit significantly from this enhanced
knowledge.
