    When Alaska became a US territory, it came with a modest population of Russian and British settlers (in addition to the native peoples). The Alaskan gold rush brought in people from around the world, but mostly the western US. Mining, fishing and later oil brought in more immigrants--again, mostly from the US.

      The first people in "Alaska" came from north-east Asia about 16,000 years ago. Previously there were no humans at all in the Americas. Their descendants eventually populated all the way down to Cape Horn in Chile. All Europeans in the Americas are recent, starting less than 530 years ago.

    Asian 5.4% (4.4% Filipino, 0.3% Chinese, 0.2% Laotian, 0.2% Japanese, 0.1% Indian, 0.1% Vietnamese, 0.1% Thai)

    American Indian or Alaskan Native 14.8%

    Pacific Islander: 1.0% (0.7% Samoan, 0.1% Hawaiian, 0.1% Tongan)

    Two or more races: 7.3%

    Other races: 1.7%

    The population was 5.5% of Hispanic or Latino origin (of any race) and 94.5% of Non-Hispanic and Latino origin (of any race).
