The Melungeons (1600s- ) are a mixed-race people in America who live in the Appalachian mountains where Tennessee meets Virginia meets Kentucky. There are about 50,000 of them.

Op deze afbeelding is het meisje Olive Oatman te zien. Zij was het eerste blanke meisje dat is getatoeerd toen ze nog maar 14 was. Ze werd als slaaf verhandeld en mishandeld.
