The AAMS of Nova Scotia, Canada, is a Métis organization; therefore, proof of Acadian and Aboriginal ancestry is required of its members. The term, “Souriquois,” means “salt water men” and was commonly used by early French explorers and settlers of our lands to describe the Mi’Kmaw People of the Nova Scotia mainland and sea coast – thus distinguishing the Mi'Kmaw from other Indian tribes. We are an Acadian-Métis people and AAMS members share family ancestries that trace back to Nova Scotia's earliest Acadian communities; our ancestral connection to First Nations Peoples is largely Mi'Kmaw.
