Local Immigrant Population*

4000

*Immigrant Population is an estimated sum of the number of naturalized Americans from this country and citizens from this country living in the Seattle Metro Area under any sort of immigration visa.  It does not count the American offspring or descendants of immigrants from this country, which can go back many generations and account for large numbers of people.  1,000 is the default number when we don’t have a better count.

Languages:

Indonesians speak Indonesian. It is the official language, referred to as Bahasa Indonesia. Javanese is the most common primary language.

Notes:

The first notable wave of Indonesian immigration to the United States took place in the 1950’s.  Seattle is not a top destination for Indonesians in America, but you will find pockets of vibrant Indonesian communities in the Puget Sound region.  They participate regularly in local festivals with their beautiful, traditional dress and dance.  There is a more pronounced Indonesian influence across the border in Vancouver.
