The term mulatto has been applied to a mixture of black and white families. The term can also be applied to a mixture of native American and black families.

This definition is not always recognized. Many times a group of people is recognized as "mulatto" even though their true heritage is unknown. For instance, on the census rolls of Calcasieu Parish, Louisiana, many, if not all, of the residents are identified as "mullato" on various past census reports.

The difference between a Melungeons and Mulattos is that Melungeons were not born as slaves and Mulattoes were born as slaves, unless the Mulatto’s mother had been set free before their birth.
