Language Map of the US

I recently came across this map showing details of where languages other than English are common in the US.   Results I found somewhat surprising are the Russian in Alaska,  Chinese in eastern Washington and western NY,  Hindi in Iowa, Hmong in Minnesota,  Arabic in Michigan, and widely scattered areas of German.

Hi from Germany (just had our own polar temperatures, but just a few days and only -15 C),

I was looking for details on the iOS font import, but got to look around a little.

The story behind the Hmong speakers is related to the Indochina wars. I can't remember the details, but it’s kinda (in)famous. Well, it helps Americans to study the language … first read about it in a grammar. has some details.
