Local Immigrant Population*

2000

*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:

Norwegian and English.

Notes:

Norwegians have been coming to Seattle for generations and their influence can be seen all over the city with many active social, cultural, and community organizations. A good place to start is at the Nordic Museum in Ballard.  Syttende Mai, Saint Lucia’s Day, Viking Days, and Skandia Midsommarfest are big festivals in Seattle with a long history where local Scandinavians (Norwegians, Swedes, Danes, Finns, and Icelanders) come together.
