"Seventy percent of the 57,000 American Indians living in New York City are of Hispanic origin, according to census figures. That is 40,000 American Indians from Latin America — up 70 percent from a decade ago.

"The trend is part of a demographic growth taking place nationwide of Hispanics using 'American Indian' to identify their race. The number of Amerindians — a blanket term for indigenous people of the Americas, North and South — who also identify themselves as Hispanic has tripled since 2000, to 1.2 million from 400,000.'"

"...the bureau has never made it easy to recognize the indigenous roots of 'Mexican Americans/Chicanos' or 'Latinos/Hispanics.' The long and sordid history of the census has been to direct or redirect them into the white category, even--and especially--when they have asserted their indigenous roots or when they have checked the 'other' race category. (Since 1980, about half of Hispanics/Latinos have checked the “other” race category and are virtually the only group that chooses this category.) This has been a standard practice of the bureau since the second half of the twentieth century. Coincidentally, this is also when government bureaucrats imposed the term 'Hispanic,' a tag that generally masks the existence of indigenous and/or African roots in many peoples of the Americas."
