Melissa Davlin – The Bhutanese Journey.  Beginning in late 2008, hundreds of Bhutanese refugees began resettling in the Magic Valley.  The move marked the final leg of a 20 year journey that began with ethnic cleansing and discrimination in Bhutan in the late 1980s.  The conflict resulted in 100,000 refugees fleeing the country and waiting for a resolution in refugee camps in southeast Nepal.  Now that they’re in Idaho, how are they adjusting?  What are the major challenges?  How are they making their mark on the community that has taken them in, and what does their future look like?

Davlin has worked at the Times-News for five years, first in the features department and now as a political reporter.  In 2011, she traveled to refugee camps in Nepal to meet refugees who were Idaho-bound, and spent the next year documenting their transition to life in the United States.  She is currently looking for a publisher for her forthcoming book, “Dal and Potatoes: Bhutanese Refugees in Idaho.”
