We are the Métis Eastern Tribal Indian Society of Maine.
Métis are mixed blood people with aboriginal
(First Nations) ancestry. We are one band of
Métis people located in the North East USA,
including but not limited to the state of Maine.
The word "Métis" is French and is most often associated with people of mixed Aboriginal/French ancestry, but, historically includes people of aboriginal and all non-aboriginal ancestry.
The Métis of Maine may include anyone with First Nations ancestry, and ancestry from any other part of the world.
*** At the July 25th "Special Pow Wow Planning Meeting" the members decided, with sad news for everyone, we will have to cancel the August 21 & 22 Pow Wow. We will have a work/gathering weekend on the Pow Wow dates of August 21 & 22 instead. Come camping for the weekend like we did on the June Pow Wow dates. ***
At the present time we plan on holding the September Meeting (19th) at the Yellow Feather Cultural Center. The wearing of "MASKS IS MANDATORY" and there will be "No Feast" after the meeting. Please consider your health and safety before you decide to attend. If we hear any changes from the State of Maine and in CDC Guidance we will notify our members on this website and Facebook.
The health of our Metis members, the public and other Native Americans is very important to everyone. Please stay healthy and safe during these trying times.
** A very special and heartfelt THANK YOU to the people who braved the heat & humidity (again) to help on our work/gathering weekend. We accomplished a lot that we couldn't have done without them. They were: Steve B., Ralph B., Rose S., Bob S., Denise B., and Doug B.**
