CDP or census designated place of Satus, has a population of 746 according to the 2000 census. Native Americans
accounted for 37% of the population, while whites accounted for 32% of the population. Hispanics (mainly being

poverty line. The cdp covers an area of 69.3 sq. mi., which means it is spread out. There is a total of 215
housing units in the cdp, which gives Satus an average household size of around 3.5 persons per housing unit.
