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.
