There is one main location where a majority (around 50 or more housing units) is located. The other housing units are widely spread out. About 57% of the settlements population lives below the poverty line, which means the CDP's population has economic problems. Indians make up 99% of the settlements population. Whites make up less than 1% of the population. There is a sharp contrast in scenery between Sangrey and the other CDP'S which are located in the Reservations mountains, to the secenery of the plains. From the treeless plains, Sangrey which is not too far from the open plains, and the other settlements located in the nearby Bear Paw Mountains, have many a tree which paints a beautiful scenery.
