3. Native America

All of the natural majesty packed into Arizona’s borders supports one of the most inclusive societies in the nation. The state holds the nation’s largest concentration of Native American language speakers, with Navajo and Apache the most commonly spoken in Arizona households. The Heard Museum is an interesting showcase of Native American ethnography in Arizona. The border with Mexico contributes to a thriving Latino community. As the last continental state to join the union, Arizona was the last frontier to be settled. Populations in Arizona trace a proud heritage to Germany, Italy, Ireland, and England, creating a melting point of cultural influences. People from every walk of life make their way to Arizona to enjoy the climate, the scenery, and the vibrancy of life in the Grand Canyon State.
