Urban Indians, communities developed by small enclaves of Native Americans/ First Nations and Alaskan Natives since the 1930s. They tend to form small percentages of the urban areas' population. Virtually every major city in the US has an American Indian community.
The highest concentration of Urban Indians is believed to be in Anchorage, Alaska where over 10 percent of the population identify themselves in the census as having some Native ancestry, with 7.3 percent identifying that as their only ancestry.
Some moderate-sized cities and suburbs lie adjacent to Indian Reservations, examples being Asheville, North Carolina; Miami, Florida; Green Bay, Wisconsin; Rapid City, South Dakota; Billings, Montana; Tacoma, Washington; Sedona, Arizona; and Palm Springs, California.
