Say What? Turks from Turkey? I saw a lot of Turks from Turkey at the MHA gathering in June 2007. One of them was a magnificent dancer!! I was honored to meet Turks who worked for a Turkish TV station who came to film the Melungeons. This is a picture from the MHA gathering. The man with the hat is Turker Ozdogan. Turker, has many talents and is an artist and Turkish historian. He gave an eye-opening lecture about “Turkish-Melungeon Connections.” Mr. Ozdogan is a professor of ceramics at George Washington University.
