North America

“All nations will come and worship before you."

- Revelation 15:4

Approximately 22% of Native Americans live on tribal lands or reservations. Living conditions on the reservations are sometimes comparable to Third World countries with employment, education, housing, health, alcoholism being a few social issues faced on reservations.

Besides residing on reservations, large numbers of Native Americans have migrated to metro areas. Approximately 70% of Native Americans live in metro areas. Metro areas with significant Native American populations include Minneapolis, Denver, Phoenix, Tucson, Chicago, Oklahoma City, Houston, New York City, Los Angeles, and Rapid City.
