About Waziristan: Once part of the opulent Mughal Empire, Waziristan now belongs to the Tribal Areas in eastern Afghanistan and northwestern Pakistan. It was named after the Wazir tribe who lived there for centuries. Like so many other regions in this part of the world, Waziristan has experienced years of recent turmoil and difficulties, especially in its more remote areas. Its prior heritage, however, was that of wonderfully vibrant arts and skillfully crafted jewelry.
