Thirteen students from the far-off Hindu Kush mountain range in Pakistan, the unique Kalas tribe, arrived yesterday in Athens as guests of the education ministry.
The 3,000 members of the mountainous tribe follow ancient Greek customs and religious practices, speak a mixture of Greek, Sanskrit and Persian, and consider themselves descendants of Alexander the GreatYs soldiers, with Greece as their real homeland.
Over the past few years, Greek educators have staged a campaign to preserve the tribe's traditions by helping build a school in the Kalas' region. http://tftb.com/deify/kalas.htmhttp://tftb.com/deify/kalaspics.htmhttp://www.hri.org/news/greek/apeen/1997/97-12-20_1.apeen.html
