Melungeon Truths

Pikeville, KY

#1 Dec 28, 2012
Thru historical records and human genetics the Melungeons was found to be Portuguesse and Native Americans. Lately there has been a few people spreading non truths about the Melungeon people, in light of these non truths being spread by media, several people have started a mission to educate the public on the REAL TRUTHS of the Melungeon people. Media has recently been calling the Melungeon people liars and calling their ancestors liars, THIS IS NOT TRUE!! The following two videos prove without a doubt that the Melungeon's Portuguesse ancestry was NEVER A LIE!! The Melungeon's Native American ancestry has been traced from Hatteras island's Hatteras tribe to the Mattamuskeet reservation to the Saponi tribe then to Newman's ridge. Please help in spreading these two videos so that we can stop the mis educations and to help preserve the Melungeon's history and Tennessee's history.

To this point, there has been no evidence connecting a known Melungeon to anyone from Portugal. These so-called “historical records” are far from conclusive, and in many cases, are extremely biased. While the media has not grasped the nuances of the recent DNA study, no one has called Melungeons “liars,” nor have they ruled out any ancestries. The DNA study showed what was found – period. Further study may expand on these findings.
