Ancient People, Startling Histories

One of the best things about being a reporter is that I get to indulge my curiosity. But this is a local news source; it’s not always a place where you can indulge interests outside the Flathead, which is why I spend some of my non-working hours (ahem), learning about a subject in which I find myself increasingly interested: obscure and sometimes marginalized ethnic groups, like the Melungeons or Ainu people."
