Yezidis International’s Journey to Ancestral Land. . . identifying a Yezidi
What are some of the ways to tell if someone is of Yezidi faith? We asked and they answered…

-basmbar (the red/white yarn worn as a charm)
-“tok” or grivan (the white undershirt with the round neckline )
– orange pshtik(a fanny pack like item) on the Grandmas
-the clothing

– “khuin ” (literally blood)- which we took to mean features
-long mustaches on the elderly men

-rituals and ceremonies
– the dialect or language
