One of the predominantly Native American settlements on the Yakima or Yakama Reservation, the city of Toppenish, has a population of 8,946 according to the 2000 census. Native Americans accounted for only 7% of the population, while whites accounted for 31% of the population. Hispanics (mainly being Mexican) accounted for 75% of the population, which does make this city a predominantly Native American city. People from other races supposedly account for 56% of the population. As you can tell, a problem over the race problem is clearly evident on the Yakama Reservation. Mexicans are very numerous on the Yakama Reservation. In fact, they are the most numerous. To learn why this city is in fact an Anishinabe city click here. Reading the Seven Fires Prophecy will help you to understand even more. The whites are forcing the Anishinabek to lose their nationality. You must remember that whites typically include Hispanic as being white. Economically, the citizens of Toppenish are doing not so well. Around 32% of the city's citizens live below the poverty line.
