Local Immigrant Population*

8000

*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:

English is the common and official language in Kenya.

Notes:

It may not seem apparent on the surface, but Seattle is graced with a tight knit Kenyan population.  If you are Kenyan in Seattle, then you should not feel too lonely, although the western habit of ignoring strangers in public places may be difficult to grasp at first.  Enough Kenyans have settled in the region to sustain cultural festivals, community associations, and places of worship.  A google search will reveal some restaurants with Kenyan food, which is probably a good indicator of neighborhoods and towns with colorful clusters of Kenyan community.
