Profile America — a public service of the U.S. Census Bureau. This is National American Indian Heritage Month, also called Native American Heritage Month. Either way, it's observed with a wide variety of events across the country. The 2010 Census counted 5.2 million American Indians and Alaska Natives in the U.S., 1.7 percent of the total population. California is home to the highest number of these groups, at over 723,000, followed by Oklahoma at nearly 483,000. Los Angeles County leads all of the nation's counties with the number of people in this racial category. American Indians and Alaska Natives are the largest minority group in five states across the U.S. You can find more facts about America's people, places and economy from the American Community Survey, at <www.census.gov>.
