The first settlers in Maine were the Red Paint People about 3000 years ago. By the time the Europeans came, the Abenaki, Penobscot, and Passamaquoddy tribes were in Maine. Claude de Saint-Étienne de la Tour came from France and set up a trading post. The Plymouth Colony sent some people from Massachusetts to do another trading post.
