Orakzai has been the most calm of the seven semi-autonomous tribal regions.
"We were busy in raising a lashkar [tribal militia] to evict Taleban from the region when this attack took place," Qeemat Khan Orakzai, a member of the council, told Reuters news agency.
More than 50 people were wounded when the attacker targeted a gathering of about 500 people from the Alizai tribe on Friday, according to AP news agency.
