According to the 2010 US census, the Asian American/Pacific Islander (AAPI) community is made up of about 18.2 million people or 3.6% of the population of the U. S. there are five major Asian populations in the US: Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Filipino and Southeast Asian. The AAPIs have origins in at least 29 Asian countries and 20 Pacific Islander countries. There are as many languages, cultures and religions found in this population.  More than 100 different languages spoken and just as many cultures and religions found in this population. The largest group of Asians is Chinese followed by Filipinos. Many Asians came to the U. S. seeking both a better life and employment.

Although Asian groups are very diverse in terms of culture, language, etiquette and rules for interaction, a common thread of Confucian, Buddhist and Taoist thought links their health care beliefs and practices and are derived from Chinese tradition.  When planning for or providing care to the Pacific Islanders, the APN should utilize a Chinese frame of reference because less is known about this group. 

The term Native American refers to the indigenous people of North, South, and Central American and includes American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/AN) (Kosoko-Laski et al, 2009). About 5.2 million people identify as being American Indian or Alaska natives. This American Indian population is confined to 26 states in the US with most in the western part of the country.  The largest AI populations by tribes are Cherokee, Navajo, Choctaw, Mexican American Indian, Chippewa, Sioux, Apache, Blackfeet, Cree, and Iroquois.   The largest AN population are Yup’ik, Inupiat, Tlingit-Haida, Alaskan Athabascan, and Aleut and Tsimshian.

This population is highly diverse with 573 federally recognized tribes and several others not federally recognized.  Federally recognized tribes are provided health and education assistance from the Indian Health Service, US Department of Health and Human Services.   Depending on their geographical location, cultural practices, and language, life situations differ considerably.
