Local Immigrant Population*

1000

*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:

Uzbek and Russian.

Notes:

The Uzbek community in Seattle appears relatively small compared to some other major US metros.  The immigration history of Uzbeks to the PNW are not particularly well documented, but ties go back to the 1970’s.  The Uzbeks had enough friends in Seattle at that time for the City of Seattle to enter into a sister city alliance with Tashkent, the capital of Uzbekistan and the largest city in Central Asia.

There is one Uzbek food truck operating in the Seattle area – there are certainly few if any others on the West Coast.  Sounds delicious!
