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.
A very special thank you to Split Feather Singers for an awesome weekend !!!
I thank you for the dignity and respect shown as we honored Bob "Silver Eagle" Brawn and AnnMarie "Little One Feather" Mazzella. I pray the Great Spirit guides them on their journeys.
The Traders were amazing. Great craftsmanship, excellent products and some of the best personalities anywhere.
Thank you to all who attended. I hope you enjoyed your weekend and I hope to see all of you again.
A very special thank you to the Metis members who helped set up, run and take down everything. All of your hard work is appreciated.
Thank you. Grand Chief Steve "Two Owls" Belanger
