The actual enrollment figures on during the Census year should be included, along with official tribal names for more complete data.

I know for a fact that there are about 10,000 enrolled Northern Arapahos. And there's way more Shoshones than what is stated, combining the E. Shoshones, Western Shoshone, and Shoshone-Bannocks (listed as the Fort Hall tribe).

Overall, I bet the Navajo tribe is the biggest. A lot of those self-identified Cherokees are probably not.
LOL
Whats Alot??

Facts
We Number about 250,000 in Oklahoma and about 100,000 outside
Umm thats Citizens
If were to count everyone that claims the numbers would be in the 850,000 range
And that is only the Cherokee Nation
United Keetoowah Band is about 15,000
And Eastern Band is another 15,000

By last count we have about 15000 speakers that can read and write our language
That is increasing every year BTW
They are talking about expanding the immersion program to go up to 6th grade
Our University now has a 4 year Degree in Cherokee

The Nahua Indians are quote huge. Atleast 2 million of them making about 2-3% of Mexico's Indigenous population.

There was a 2010 Census Powwow here in San Diego, to get the word out, I attended workshops where Native Census workers were on hand to give guidance.

The were Census Form examples for local tribal members on how to list themselves by Nation & Band.

So looking at this list I posted, there are Digueno, Mission, and California Indians, all labels or names used over the decades after colonization.

At least Natives are getting away from being counted as "Hispanic" due to names.

I'm actually a little Canada obsessed... particularly with Nunavut. I have no idea why.
