Mi'kmaq in the United States

Q: I am a M'iqmaq from Listuguj Quebec. I am living in the United States now. How can I register with the US government as a First Nations person?

A: There's only one Mi'kmaq band in the Unites States, the Aroostook Band of Micmacs. Here's their membership page: http://www.micmac-nsn.gov/html/membership.html. It looks like you can't just transfer your tribal membership, but it's possible for a Mi'kmaq person to belong to both the US band and a Canadian band, if there's any ancestry in common.

Also, here's a website from a Wabanaki organization on the Jay Treaty, which should apply to you: http://www.ptla.org/ptlasite/wabanaki/jay.htm.

Hope that helps!
