This article focuses on the assimilation of several cultures across the world in the U.S. Experts now say that by 2010, four out of every 10 Americans will be something other than Caucasian. Houmas live on the bayou. They are the largest Native American tribe in Louisiana, but the federal government has yet to recognize them, questioning their ancestry. The Arab population in the U.S. grew by nearly 40 percent in the 1990s. More than one-third of Arab immigrants are Lebanese. Many live in Michigan, the state with the highest percentage of Arabs in the nation.
