  • Misc.:  1.. In Nova Scotia there are Mi’kmaw (Micmac)  McKenzies. 3. Most other mixed McKenzies on this site descend from Cree/Scottish McKenzie Metis couples of western Canada. 2. My marriage database contains both Innu Montagnais First Nations individuals as well as mixed Montagnais / French marriages as listed in a study by the Communauté Métisse du Domaine du Roy et de la Seigneurie de Mingan.  Some mixed French/Montagnais descendants self-identify as Metis (see Etienne Rivard’s discussion paper).
