Our most brunette people according to anthropologists are living in southern Belarus – Polessie. The region is often pointed to as the original home-land of Slavs by historians.

There was a time when Poleshuks (people of Polessie) in southern Belarus, northern Ukraine, eastern Poland wanted independence declaring themselves a separate Slavic ethnicity.

Belarusians said – Poleshuks of Belarus are Belarusians like the rest of us  and most people of Polessie agreed. That was the end to their independence movement.

Anyway! Poleshuks of southern Belarus are very Slavic people. There are books about their traditional cultures. They also look as Bulgarians. @NikeBG and @aaaa don’t tell me these people don’t look as your countrymen.
