Indian American

Indian Americans are citizens of the United States of Indian ancestry and comprise about 3.18 million people, or about 1.0% of the U.S. population, the country's third largest self-reported Asian ancestral group after Chinese Americans and Filipino Americans, according to American Community Survey of 2010 data. The U.S. Census Bureau uses the term Asian Indian to avoid confusion with the indigenous peoples of the Americas commonly referred to as American Indians.

Famous quotes containing the words indian and/or american:

    High from the summit of a craggy cliff,
    Hung o’er the deep, such as amazing frowns
    On utmost Kilda’s shore, whose lonely race
    Resign the setting sun to Indian worlds,
    The royal eagle draws his vigorous young
    James Thomson (1700–1748)

    For most Northerners, Texas is the home of real men. The cowboys, the rednecks, the outspoken self-made right-wing millionaires strike us as either the best or worst examples of American manliness.... The ideal is not an illusion nor is it contemptible, no matter what damage it may have done. Many people who scorn it in conversation want to submit to it in bed. Those who believe machismo reeks of violence alone choose to forget it once stood for honor as well.
    Edmund White (b. 1940)
