Ancestry Maps


Choctaw ancestry map The ePodunk map shows U.S. cities with the highest percentages of people of ancestry. Learn about cities with genealogy and find in-depth community information about the ancestry cities.


The Choctaw are concentrated in Oklomaha, which was named for the Choctaw terms "okla," meaning "people, and "homa," meaning "red."

In the 2000 census, 87,349 people in the U.S. claimed Choctaw ancestry.

ePodunk mapped the top communities by percentage of population. The map and the following list show communities in which 1,000 or more people listed an ancestry group, and in which at least 2 percent of those people said they were of Choctaw ancestry.
