There are three major races in America that come to most of our minds right away:

But those are only the major races, there’s a whole bunch of other races people are interested in knowing about.

And today, we are going to look at the percent of the population in Kansas that are Native American.

Native Americans are not a major portion of the current American Population, but they are still very important.

There are now over 2 million people who identify as Native American living in America, making up .65% of the total population. According to the most recent American Community Survey, the Native American population in Kansas is 19,241 – at 0.7% of the total population of Kansas.

We still believe in the accuracy of data — especially from the census. So that’s where we went to get the breakdown of race across Kansas.

That lead us to the Census’s most recently available data, the 2013-2017 American Community Survey data from the US Census.

Specifically, we looked at table B03002: Hispanic OR LATINO ORIGIN BY RACE. Here are the category names as defined by the Census:

  • Hispanic or Latino
  • White alone*
  • Black or African American alone*
  • American Indian and Alaska Native alone*
  • Asian alone*
  • Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander alone*
  • Some other race alone*
  • Two or more races*
* Not Hispanic or latino

Our particular column of interest here was the number of people who identified as American Indian and Alaska Native alone.

We limited our analysis to places with a population greater than 5,000 people. That left us with 58 cities.

We then calculated the percent of residents that are American Indian and Alaska Native. The percentages ranked from 4.13% to 0.0%.

Finally, we ranked each city based on the percent of American Indian and Alaska Native population with a higher score being more American Indian and Alaska Native than a lower score. Eudora took the distinction of being the most American Indian and Alaska Native, while De Soto was the least Native American city.

Review Of Kansas by HomeSnacks User

Lawrence Kansas is one of my favorite places. Lawrence is located a quick drive west of Kansas City, MO and KS. Lawrence is the home to the University of Kansas and Haskell Indian Nations University. Lawrence is known for having a great night life with a great music and art scene. Some of my favorite memories as a young adult is from my college years at Lawrence, sitting on the hill to watch football games, enjoying beverages and delicious food on Mass Street and meeting lots of varied people.

Like most college towns, Lawrence always has something going on at a reasonable price. Between the two universities in town, there is always a play, a music event, a sports event and other activities. Also being minutes from Kansas City via I 70, you will never be bored in Lawrence.
