In 1995, the Bureau of Labor Statistics conducted a poll to ask Native Americans which term they prefer people used when referring to their heritage. Many experts, though, say addressing someone by their tribal affiliation is preferred.

American Indian 49.76 percent

Native American 37.35 percent

No preference 5.72 percent

Other term 3.66 percent

Alaska Native 3.51 percent
