The land around Salamanca is gorgeous but it's a dying town with a casino. Whatever the Senecas are doing with their money, they aren't putting it into their town.
On the other hand, the Oneidas have done pretty well with their enterprises near Oneida and Verona. They even have their own housing on Oneida land within the city of Oneida limits. Housing – Oneida Indian Nation

They also have their own gas station chain: SavOn - Home

If you look at school info, the NA percentage is roughly I the 33-40% range: Search For Schools and Colleges

So, that could be why it seems to be higher.

North of the border, Winnipeg has 70,000 First Nations and Metis people, out of a population of 650,000. It is probably the largest population of any North American city.

(Though it's hard to directly compare population figures in the US and Canada given rather different means of counting).

There are smaller cities in the US with similar percentages, but in terms of a mid sized/major city and maybe outside of Mexico and Central American counties in the North American continent, Winnipeg likely has the highest percentage.

I'm Native American and I live in Sacramento, and know a lot of urban Indians here. When I want to be closer to my culture or get good frybread, I visit family in Arizona and New Mexico.

Native American land ownership in the Palm Springs CA area amounts to about 50%, in a checkerboard pattern, so the reservation land is indistinguishable;e from privately owned land. Plus they own a big casino. One of the wealthiest tribes in the US.

I was thinking Albuquerque or perhaps a smaller city in California. HBO had a series once about urban life among Native Americans.
