Chapter Summary

This paper focuses on the gwātī healing ritual practiced in the Sarhadd region of Iranian Baluchistan. Though the gwātī ritual is widespread all over Baluchistan (both in Iranian and Pakistani sides) and its central pattern is relatively common in different locations, however the homegrown varieties of the ritual are quite interesting from the anthropological perspective. The data for this article has been collected in the Sarhadd region of Iranian Baluchistan during the ethnographic fieldwork in 2012.
