What is MITSC?

The Maine Indian Tribal-State Commission (MITSC) is an inter-governmental entity created as a part of the Maine Indian Land Claims Settlement of 1980. Six members are appointed by the State, two by the Houlton Band of Maliseet Indians, two by the Passamaquoddy Tribe, and two by the Penobscot Indian Nation. The thirteenth, who is the chairperson, is selected by the other twelve.

MITSC’s principal responsibilities are to continually review the effectiveness of the Settlement and the social, economic, and legal relationship between the Tribes and the State. In its broadest sense, MITSC is tasked with supporting effective Tribal-State relations, and in service of this, empasizes outreach, networking, and education.
