The number and percent of children living in Native American tribal areas who speak a language other than English. The vast majority of these children also speak English "very well" as defined by the U.S. Census Bureau.

Data Source: U.S. Census Bureau, American Community Survey, five year data (2006-2010), Table B16004


Data for the tribes and pueblos refer only to individuals living in those jurisdictions and do not include Native Americans living in cities. Data for Navajo are only for those living on the portion of the Navajo Nation that is located in New Mexico. Data for New Mexico refer to all Native Americans living in any tribe, pueblo or city.  

In most tribes and pueblos, the vast majority of individuals living in these tribal areas are, themselves, Native Americans. Those who are not Native American alone can either be a different race entirely, or they may be two or more races, with Native American being one of those races.
