FEZANA Talks #26 - The Zoroastrian Glossary Project

Global Zoroastrian Glossary

The FEZANA Talks #26

The Global Glossary was created to unify the English spelling of Zoroastrian terms used in North America. It is an important initiative launched by the FEZANA Religious Education Committee with the hope to help future authors and publications maintain regularity and consistency.

Please join Armaity Homavazir and Tashan Mistree as they discuss the work that went behind this initiative and how Zoroastrians can practically use it in their community.

Armaity Homavazir

Armaity Homavazir has been involved with the Zoroastrian community from a very young age. She has participated in, organized and spoken at many congresses over the years. In 1996 and 1998, she was creator and co-director of Camp Pardis – a successful, six-week, summer camp for Zoroastrian children in Toronto. At present, she is a Religion Class teacher in Toronto and involved with the FEZANA Religious Education Committee in their endeavour to create lesson plans for local teachers. Armaity is a Special Education teacher working with students with Dyslexia and/or other Language based challenges. She has a passion for languages and has studied Gujarati, French, and Italian. She also has a background in Linguistics and Psychology. It is through her work with students challenged in literacy, and her own growing awareness of English spelling and orthography, that inspired this project.

Tashan Mistree

Tashan Mistree was fortunate to have been taught classical Zoroastrianism from a young age and has been teaching since she was a teenager. She currently resides in Philadelphia with her husband and two children and is a member and teacher at the Zoroastrian Association of Pennsylvania and New Jersey (ZAPANJ). Tashan believes in teaching Zoroastrianism the ‘fun way’, through activities, songs, arts, crafts, and relatable content for both Parents and children. She brought her everyday experience in living Zoroastrianism as a teacher parent to this project.
