H.A. Rose writes that Kalash (कालाश), a tribe of Kafirs, long subject to Chitral and found in two small villages, Kalashgum and Bidir of that State. They speak the Kalash language and are Faqir Miskin by status. The Kam Kafirs affirm that the whole of the country from the Eastern Kafiristan frontier as far as Gilgit was once inhabited by the Kalach.
Rajatarangini mentions that Bhagika, Sharadbhasi, Mummuni, Mungata, Kalasha and other men of the king's party harassed the enemies. Kamalaya, son of Lavaraja king of Takka, took the king's side in this war in 1121 AD.
