Index: The Blackfoot Confederacy In Canadian Census Records

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

These are links to my extracts – so far – of census records for the Blackfoot First Nations people who reside in what is now Canada. I have found them recorded in historical Canadian census records as the Blackfoot, Peigan (aka Piikani) and the Blood (Kanai Nation or Kainawa) and Siksika. Each link below leads to a post with a list of the surnames carried by the Blackfoot in a single given subdistrict at one point in time. Where technically possible, I’ve linked to each surname individually. Where I couldn’t do that I’ve made a link to the subdistrict. In all cases I’ve linked only to records that you can access free of charge.

Please note that the records were created by settlers so they followed settler naming practices and applied new location names.


I wish to acknowledge (as a settler) that these were traditional territories

that were already inhabited and named by indigenous peoples.
