Native American Information
turn of the 20th century, many people believed that Native Americans
would assimilate into mainstream society and disappear as unique peoples.
But native communities in both the United States and Canada survived
disastrous assimilation efforts. Instead of disappearing, they revitalized
tribal governments, created modern economies, attained legal rights,
and revived cultural traditions and ceremonies that had nearly died
out. They combined aspects of their traditional cultures with contemporary
life without sacrificing the core of their identity.
According to the 2000 census, about 2.5 million people in the United States reported they were Native Americans. Some 1.5 million others reported they were Native American plus another race, typically white. The two figures together represented a 26 percent increase over the 1990 census figures. Overall, Native American people accounted for about 1 percent of the total U.S. population.
