Did you know there were a group of people before the first explorers? They were dark skinned often with blue or green eyes. They said they were the lost tribe of Israel. Others said they were Portugese. Who were these people? The are called “Melungeons”. Our family are of this line of people that were completely written out of America’s history books. People say their history here is so old they don’t know it. Others say they are of the ancient Phoenicians and came here by boat 2000 years ago.
Watch our VLOG as we tour Melungeon country yesterday in the mountains of east TN.
