    Where Most Native Americans Live - 2020 census

    The number of people who identify as Native American alone or in combination has increased by around 85% - from 5.2 million in 2010 census (which was 1.7% of the U.S. population) to 9.7 million in 2020 census (2.9% of the total U.S. population):

    States with the highest % of Native population in 2020:

    Alaska - 21.86%
    Oklahoma - 16.01%
    New Mexico - 12.45%
    South Dakota - 11.15%
    Montana - 9.28%
    North Dakota - 7.16%
    Arizona - 6.34%
    Wyoming - 4.76%


    Can this jump from 5.2 million in 2010 to 9.7 million in 2020 be explained only by high birth rates?

    No, it has to be due to changes in self-identification. I heard somewhere that there was also a dramatic increase in the percentage of Hispanic Americans who self-identify as “multiracial” or “some other race”, which corresponded to fewer Hispanics identifying as “white only”.

    On the NJ/NY boundary hill region - Mawwah, Suffern, Ringwood area:
    “An early literary reference to the Ramapo people as “Jackson Whites” dates back to 1900 in J.M. Van Valen’s History of Bergen County, which states:
    The Ramapo Indians sometimes visited the settlements in the township of Franklin. They were known formerly as the Hackensack Indians, but are more properly described the “Jackson Whites.” They bear little resemblance to the Indians, yet as tradition gives it they are descendants of Hessians, Indians, and Negroes, but know nothing of their ancestry, so ignorant have they become.”

    We have lots up here in my neck of the woods. Once "Indian Status" was approved for people who traced their Aboriginal ancestry from non-paternal line ancestors then the numbers of registered "Status Indians" increased by a large amount
