Index:  Indigenous, Metis & Mixed-Heritage Surname Anchor Posts

Each of these posts is dedicated to one surname that is carried by someone connected to indigenous, Metis or mixed-heritage people in Canada.  Please be aware that it’s a synthesis of the information I’ve collected in my personal research throughout the years and is by no means complete!


  • Surname lists: Surname Anchor Posts,  Metis (ON)
  • Regions: AB-BC-MB-QC-SK-Western Canada
  • Ethnicity:  Metis, Abenaki, Chipewyan, Cree, Huron, Mixed heritage: Irish, French
  • Associated surnames: Branconnier, Campbell, Cardinal, Carriere, Chalifoux, Charon / Sharon, Courteoreille, Desjarlais, Falardeau, Fiddler, Flirth, Garrioch, Grouette, Hale, Hallet, Hamelin, Henderson, Houle, Kakikekamick, Kirton, Klyne, Laderoute, Ladouceur, Larocque, Lepine, Mercredi, Parker, Ryan, Sioui, Stodgill, Thibert, Tremblay, Widdle, Wylie.
  • Misc.:  1. At least two lines of western Metis Bourques descend from French Canadians. The two founding couples are:  George Bourque and his Metis wife Agathe Ladouceur and John Alfred Bourque and his Metis wife Philomene Laderoute. 2. Other Bourkes descend from Irishman John Palmer Bourke and his Metis wife Nancy Campbell. 3. The Bourke surname can be carried by Bourkes but also by Bourque descendants who have anglicized their surname to Bourke or Burke. 4. If you’re unsure of the ethnic origin of “your” Bourques, you’ll find  all Bourque / Bourke / Burke variations consolidated under the entry for Bourque.  (The Bourke and Burke surnames are also double-indexed in the appropriate post).
