Main Index: Native – First Peoples – Metis [Canadian Census Extracts]


This is part of a larger project to locate surnames carried by Inuit, First Nations, Metis and mixed-heritage people from across Canada. In this series of posts, I list surnames transcribed from census documents ranging primarily from 1881 to 1921. With the exception of the 1921 returns, you can click on each surname to reach the records for just that surname. Alternatively you can scroll down to External Links for an overall main link. Orange-coloured surnames also appear in the companion series – Native – First Peoples – Metis  [Canadian Marriage Extracts], although the names may be spelled differently.

  1. Hows she going, my grampa Lee Nickerson of Barrington Nova Scotia always told me when I ask what are we he’d say we’re native miqkma my dad Sam was miqkma he said we had to hide our identity so the priests wouldn’t take us away. My grampa never lied about anything either it is what it is or it’s not he was proud of his Miqkma heritage an instilled it for me to be a proud miqkma/mètis go ask my cousin tiffany nickerson she lives on the Rezz an still having lots of trouble with the damn dirty D.F.O. like most of us do hell we were here first we tought the irish an acaidians how to survive in our land an this is how canada treats us like terrorists we should have let the settlers starve a freeze instead of showing our compassionate nature to them woelallowin for listening an us Nickersons dont have to hide that we are miqkma we can be proud of it like Lee Nickerson was may he rest in peace in Barrington sematary at the feet of his mum Mary an his father Sam woelallowin

    • Good morning,
      Thank you for helping my Acadian ancestors. I remember often how some of my ancestors were actually helped by First Nations (poss. Mi’kmaw) to escape Acadia when the British took over. My people escaped into Maine and then finally New Brunswick. Your people have a great history and great dignity. I hope the future will be better for you personally and for your people. Evelyn
