We Believe

We The Founders of The Métis Eastern Tribal Indian Society of Maine

having declared;

 

That our peoples are the descendants of the original peoples of this land,

having been put here by the creator;

 

That the Creator gave us laws that govern all our relationships for us to

live in harmony with nature and Mankind;

 

That the laws of the creator defined our rights and responsibilities and

we as a community also respect the rights and responsibilities of

today's society.

 

That the Creator gave us our Spiritual beliefs, our languages, our cultures

and a place on Mother Earth which provided us with all our needs.

 

That we have maintained our freedom, our languages and our traditions

from our creation as a people.

 

That we continue to exercise the rights and fulfill the responsibilities

and obligations given to us by the creator for the land upon which

we were placed.

 

That the Creator has given us the right to govern ourselves and the right

to self determination.

 

That the rights and responsibilities given to us by the Creator should not

be altered or taken away by any other nation.

 

That our aboriginal title, aboriginal rights and national and international

treaty rights exist and are recognized by national and international law.

 

That the Constitution of the United States of America protects our

aboriginal title, rights (collective and individual), national and

international treaty rights.

 

That our government powers and responsibilities exist; and

 

That the Metis Eastern Tribal Indian Society of Maine is one of many

communities and individual groups with our own unique identity

and is part of the national and international communities.
