Marshella, 30, Rumbur Valley, Pakistan by Phil Borges

Marshella, 30, Rumbur Valley, Pakistan

Marshella is one of the three remaining Kalash Dehars (Shaman). He was fourteen when the spirits first started appearing to him. He told me that it was very frightening in the beginning and that he didn’t know what was happening to him. His father, a Dehar who also had his first visions at thirteen, coached Marshella through the initial stages. Today when people come to Marshella for healing he says he can “see” their problem and the reason for it before they even say anything to him.
