Métis  Nation, Inc.
We are the United States Métis Nation. Our ancestors were the original inhabitants of this great land.  We also have ancestors that came from across the ocean.  We have Native American blood flowing through our veins, yet the tribes of our heritage do not accept us because of this mixture. We are the United States Métis Nation - organized to preserve our culture, our rights, and provide services to our members.
