The Greek people have a long history in North America, which is home to over 1.3 million who claim Greek as their first ancestry and over 300K people who speak Greek at home. (Please note: the density map is Greeks who still speak Greek at home and does not include Greeks who still identify themselves as Greek, associate with predominantly other Greek people, plus maintain cultural values and traditions of their homeland, Greece.)
Greeks are responsible for introducing many literary forms and were pioneers in in many professional fields such as physics, philosophy, history, geometry, and biology. Greek culture is defined by traditions, music, language, wine, food, art, literature, and the immense passion that Greek people pride themselves on as well as their ethnic and national sense of belonging.
Although the majority of Greeks claim Greek Orthodoxy as their religion, many live a more secular life without a personal relationship with Jesus Christ influencing their daily life.
