What: The U.S. Census Bureau will hold a webinar to discuss the upcoming release of the 2010 Census American Indian and Alaska Native Summary File.

Embargo subscribers will have access to the statistics beginning Tuesday, Dec. 11. The embargoed information may not be published or posted until the public release at 12:01 a.m. (EST) Dec. 13.
The summary file provides detailed demographic information from the 2010 Census for more than 1,500 American Indian and Alaska Native tribal groupings, specific American Indian tribes, and specific Alaska Native villages that had a national population of at least 100 and for a variety of geographic areas, down to the census tract level. The file has the largest number of American Indian and Alaska Native groups of any Census Bureau data product released on American FactFinder to date, and it adds a new layer of detail to the population and housing topics previously released from the census. Additionally, for the first time, the summary file includes detailed information on individual Central American, South American and Mexican American indigenous groups.

Subject: Indians in the Census (Was: [CAMARIPO] 1850 Census
Inclusion or not... of Indian residents in the U.S. Census illustrates once again how ambiguous the status of California Indians was during the time period from 1850 when CA became a state until 1924 when all Indians were made citizens (whether they wanted to be or not -- some tribes are struggling to regain recognition of their status as independent nations, which was taken from them in violation of international law).
The treaties which U.S. Commissioners made with various California Indian tribes around 1851 were not ratified by the U.S. Senate, and the un-ratified treaties were hidden away for over 50 years. The Indians agreeing to the treaties were never informed that they were not ratified and so gave up their lands as the result of a massive fraud.
