Iroquois Confederacy Surnames

This is an ever growing list of surnames carried by members of the Iroquois Confederacy. It is part of a larger project to determine surnames carried by the First Nations and Inuit peoples in Canada.

So far the list below contains names I have extracted from the Canadian census documents of 1901, 1911 and 1921. Presently I am gradually adding surnames from the Index: Native / First Peoples / Metis Surnames [Marriage Extracts] which contains many Iroquois marriages and other names from recent Six Nations Directories ( Native American Surnames (2010)  A – L and Native American Surnames (2010 )  M – Z .  You may also wish to consult some 1881 records which can be reached through Index: The Iroquois Confederacy in Canadian Census Records.

Please note that surnames on the list below are carried by the Cayuga, Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga, Seneca and Tuscarora who live in Quebec and Ontario, It does not contain the surnames of other Iroquoian-speaking nations such as the Huron. Links to their census records can be reached in the master  Index: Native/First Peoples/Metis Surnames | Census Extracts.

  1. Hi, I am searching information about my great grandmother, her name was jenny sky, I only have a bit of very flimsy information about her told to my mother from my grandmother (deceased), apparently jenny sky was born 1877 meant to be Tuscarora mother and Sioux father (redwing), my mother thought the redwing side was the apsaroke crow redwing but doing some research it doesn’t seem possible so assuming it was the Sioux, my grandmother spoke a lot of the Lakota Sioux language, her mother jenny sky married a Russian businessman she died on the 17th November 1919 in England 2 days after my grandmother was born, my grandmothers birth name was Frederica rhaune Antoinette pulvernes. I cannot find a birth certificate of my grandmothers to verify her mothers name, I have searched ancestory and other sites but to no avail so hoping I may get answers here.
