Ustarana

Ustarana

Ustarana is a Pashtun tribe who were originally inhabitants of Dera Ismail Khan region of North West Frontier Province, Pakistan. Originally the Ustaranas were entirely a pastoral and trading tribe; but a quarrel with their neighbours, the Musa Khel, put a stop to their annual westward immigration, and they were forced to take to agriculture. They live today in the hills south of the Gomal River near the tribes Kakar and Sherani.
