    $\begingroup$ Probably unknowable unless you find genetic markers, and do genetic studies on a statistically significant fraction of the population. And of course you have sub-populations with greater or lesser percentages. $\endgroup$ – jamesqf Aug 30 '19 at 18:19

I found some averages from 23andme on sciencemag. It doesn't state the figures for all americans, although it says that 8 percent of white americans have some native american ancestry, afro-americans have on average 0.8%, and latino have 18% native american ancestry.
