Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Lasi is a tribe settled in Lasbela District of Balochistan, Pakistan. The term Lasi is a geographical name, which is even applied to all the tribes other than Baloch and Brahvi, Med, Khoja and Hindus who are settled in Lasbela. The population of Lasbela presents many features of special interest to the ethnologist. The first historical reference to the ancient population of Lasbela and Makran is to be found in Arrian, who divides the population into two distinct classes. The people of the coast whom he names the Ichthyophagoi or fish-eaters and the population of the interior, the Arabi[citation needed], the Oreitai[citation needed] and the Gadrosia of Gadrosia or Gedrosia. Several other authors have described the strange race of the Ichthyophagoi who are undoubtedly identifiable with the present fishermen of the coast.
