Mestizo (Portuguese, Mestiço; French, Métis: from Late Latin mixticius, from Latin mixtus, past participle of miscere, "to mix") is a term of Spanish origin used to designate people of mixed European and indigenous non-European ancestry.

The term has traditionally been applied mostly to those who inhabit the region spanning Latin America: from Mexico in the north to Argentina and Chile's Patagonia in the south.
