multiethnic

A child of mixed cultures or nationality; for example, the child may have one Hispanic parent and one Anglo parent. The term is frequently misapplied to the child who is biracial and has instead a racial heritage of two different races. (Most often the term "biracial" is used to describe a child who has one black and one white parent.)

In the strictest sense, most Americans are "multiethnic" because few can trace their heritage solely to one country or culture.
