bad math[edit]

The math of the area at the bottom of the article is way screwed up.Jlodman (talk) 06:03, 15 February 2011 (UTC)

Population[edit]

I used the Census as it at least had a solid number.

Possible populations by source:

United States Census Bureau = 10,321, http://censtats.census.gov/data/US/2501250.pdf

Fort Peck Assiniboine & Sioux Tribes = approximately 6,000 reside on or near the Reservation, http://www.fortpecktribes.org/tribal_history.html

Bureau of Indian Affairs = over 12,000 Assiniboine & Sioux enrolled tribal members, http://www.bia.gov/WhoWeAre/RegionalOffices/RockyMountain/WeAre/FortPeck/index.htm

Take your pick.

The distinction is between residents who live on the reservation and people who are enrolled tribal members, (and then the sub-group of enrolled tribal members who ALSO live on the rez) that is one reason why the differences in stats. I recommend using all of them and explaining it. Montanabw(talk) 06:40, 20 February 2016 (UTC)
