dc.descriptionThe fifteenth and sixteenth centuries are considered to be the heroic age of Balochistan and the classical period of Balochi literature. It was in the fifteenth century that the powerful Rind and Lasar tribes, alongside a large number of other Baloch tribes, migrated from western Makran (now in Iran), conquering other Baloch tribes on their way. Their realm stretched to Sibi and Dadar in the eastern fringes of the present-day Pakistani Balochistan and formed the first unified Baloch confederacy (Qizalbas 1979:19). Mir Cakar Khan Rind, who ruled from his capital at Sibi from 1487 to 1511 (Harrison 1981:12) was nominated as "the Great Chief" of the Baloch confederacy and the chief of all the Baloches (Baluch 1965:121; Hetu Ram 1898:105; cf. Rzehak 1998:164). Tradition holds that Mir Bibagr Rind, Mir Cakar's nephew, gave the name Balochistan (lit. "country of the Baloch") to the newly unified country (Badalkhan 1992:37, n. 23). Chakarian Balochistan was composed of the presently Iranian and Pakistani Balochistans as well as a great chunk of Afghani Balochistan.
