Here are demographics of these districts and some others: Test Scores for Salamanca City School District | GreatSchools

Given the size of Nevada, I'm surprised, like AZ, 40% of the state isn't given over to Indian reservations, but we have very small ones here in southern Nevada, a tiny one here in Las Vegas, the Paiute Indian reservation of about 20 acres of land, north of Freemont Street downtown.

If you want to overdose on Indian, go down to Bolivia, where 2/3rds of the population is still Indian, with their own Indian President, Evo Morales!

LOL just proving the point how forgotten we are that someone would assume this refers to Indian Americans (dot not feather).

go visit some reservations, casinos or no, and then post back on how nice you think they are. Just a quick tip: over 500 tribes in the U.S., only a fraction have casinos, only a fraction of those are even profitable let alone lucrative. People are quick to envy but slow to walk in our shoes.

Why is this? How is your community's / area's Native American population? Are they visible?

The local tribe is Ojibwe (Anishinaabe). The local college even teaches it. Duluth is about 2.5% Native American, making them the largest minority (92.7% of residents are white). There appears to be Native gang activity in the city.

An equal amount of Natives seem to live on rural reservations. There's the Fond du Lac Reservation about 20 miles west of town, which is highly rural. Cloquet, the nearest city, has a 12% Native American population.

There's also the Lac Courte Oreilles reservation near Hayward, Wisconsin.
Probably because most of them were killed off or died off from disease and sorrow.

In certain small towns in Wisconsin you'll see them more frequently. But in Milwaukee you rarely if ever see any walking around. They have the casino in Milwaukee (most profitable slot machines in the nation) but I'm not sure how much of a presence in the social and political spheres of the city I would infer from that.

The city and/or state seems to engage in legal extortion (oxymoron but I'm making a point) with their casino in Milwaukee by restricting the casino to so many tables and slot machines so they can periodically have the tribe coming back to the negotiation table with them. Each time it's "Well allow you to increase the number of your slot machines and tables if you give us X more dollars Y periods throughout the year."

I'm trying to picture the faces of white people if the Obama administration told them something like that about their gun stores. ->

Unlike some people I'm not a critic of Christopher Columbus. I admire the man in many ways. And it took some balls to set out exploring a new route to Asia (India) given the era he was in and the limited knowledge (and wrong ideas as well) the Europeans and others of the world had at that time. It takes so mental exercise and ability to dead reckon aboard a ship too. I never have to do it when I'm moving from point A to point B.

But it's fair to say the Amerindians are not really Indians. We call them Indians because Columbus thought he landed in Asia in India.

At any rate... the real mystery to me is not the status or lack there of... of Amerindians today, but how British-phile United Statesians became named after an Italian: Americans? I don't think the Americans ate much spaghetti until Giuseppe arrived in New Orleans with the La Cosa Nostra. Right now I have some American of Italian ancestry named Freddy looking at me askance because he wants the boarders secure and he's pissed off about Amerindian spear fishing.

As for whites in the South having some Amerindians somewhere in the family tree... some or many of them probably do. I'll hazard a guess an equal number claim (with no real reason) to have Cherokee bloodlines but really don't.

Although, I'm told a white contractor here in Milwaukee uses his distant Amerindian ancestry to obtain minority contracts from the city. So, I guess the thing about being Amerindian is whether or not it benefits you today. Unless, of course, you are undeniably Amerindian, then for good or ill, or casinos, you've had to walk a long trail of tears.
