There actually are tens of thousands of Mexican people in NYC who speak an indigenous language, however I'm not sure if they're even counted on the census at all or if they'd identify as Native American.

Interestingly, there are likely more Mexican people in NYC than San Diego.

According to American Fact Finder, NYC has 13,807 American Indians that are not of Hispanic origin compared to 21,810 that are.

No there aren't. The Mexican population in San Diego is almost twice the size as NYC.

Having lived in or near ALL of the following:

Tulsa: 66,941
New York: 58,022
Oklahoma City: 56,559
Los Angeles: 55,886
Seattle: 32,221
Minneapolis/St. Paul: 17,797
Salt Lake City: 9,707

I feel impelled to say that there's a profound difference between the people who identify as "Native American" in Tulsa/OKC and those in a place like Minneapolis/St. Paul. The vast majority of those in Tulsa/OKC are people of mixed heritage who have an ancestor on the Dawes roles and thus are legal tribal members, while the majority of People who live in Minneapolis/St. Paul are full blooded Native Americans who have lived on nearby reservations or who have many close relatives on the reservations. You can live in Tulsa for years and not think that you have ever seen a Native American (although of course you have), while in Minneapolis you meet many People in daily life (work, your neighborhood, your kids schools, at the store) and be quite clear of their heritage.

I think that percentages of the population would be a more accurate representation of the Native American cultural feel of a city. I think that smaller cities like Sioux Falls, SD (Lakota) and Duluth (Ojibwe) have a much stronger Native American "vibe" than any of the cities listed above (with the exception of Minneapolis/St. Paul).

In Oklahoma, other small cities have a much higher percentage of full blooded People than Tulsa/OKC, and thus a much clearer Native American "vibe". Examples include Pawhuska, Ponca City, Eufala, and Anadarko.

So maybe a more interesting thread would be about percentages of full blooded Native Americans in the total population of any sized community.

I suppose, but Walthill is incorporated as a village.
