 Index: Native Surname Census Extracts


This is part of a larger project to locate surnames carried by Canadian Natives, First Peoples and Metis. In this series of posts, I list surnames carried by Aboriginal (or part Aboriginal) individuals in various Canadian census records. Note: There are regular updates including external links (e.g. maps, encyclopedia) and added information (e.g. specific tribal affiliations).

The companion series – Native/First Peoples/Metis Surnames of Eastern Canada – Marriage Records contains many of the same surnames as well as others.


1. To reach the original census records for the district named below, you can click on the External Links at the bottom of the post.

2. You can also click on each individual surname to reach its listing in one of the census records (usually 1901 or 1911).

3. Surnames highlighted in orange also appear in the Marriage Records (although often spelled differently).
