The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services unveiled a new citizenship test on Thursday that includes two questions about Native Americans. The first question asks "Who lived in America before the Europeans arrived?" Acceptable answers include "Native Americans" or "American Indians." The second question requires test-takers to "Name one American Indian tribe in the United States." A complete list is maintained by the agency. The new questions are part of the first redesign of the naturalization test since it was created in 1986. Get the Story:
