Circassian

I’m amazed by the information I found when I researched “Circassian”.   It was an eye-opening learning experience.

Circassians are “Caucasians” who have a significant historical and societal influence in the Caucasus Mountain region.  It’s a diverse and complex place that can be challenging to understand (and by the way, it’s not where all “white” people originated).
