Qu’Appelle Assiniboine I.R. | Assiniboine, Cree (1921)

Main Index: Native/First Peoples/Metis Surnames | Census Extracts


This is part of a larger project to locate surnames carried by Natives, First Peoples and Metis in Eastern Canada. In this series of posts, I list surnames carried by Aboriginal (or part Aboriginal) individuals in the 1901 and 1911 census for the eastern provinces of Canada. 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 many of the individual surnames to reach that 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).

  2. Hello!
    These names are being transcribed as I interpret them on the census records so errors may occur with my transcription or in the way that the names are transcribed by the census takers. I often have a different spelling for names between the 1881, 1901, 1911 and 1921 records.
    As soon as I can I’ll go back to the original record and see if the error is mine.
    Thanks so much for the information,
