Mestizos (from Late Latin mixticius, from Latin mixtus, past participle of miscere, "to mix") is a term for mixed race persons. Usually, the term has been applied to those of mixed Amerindian and European ancestry. However, it has also been applied to other mixed groups.

Regarding if mixed groups are (new) races, see the Race article. Regardless, they may be ethnicities.
