One of the predominantly Native American settlements on the Yakima or Yakama Reservation, the city of Wapato, has a population of 4,582 according to the 2000 census. Native Americans accounted for only 9% of the population, while whites accounted for 25% of the population. Hispanics (mainly being Mexican) accounted for 76% 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 Wapato are doing not so well. Around 34% of the city's citizens live below the poverty line.
