Why does the usda specify 'American Indian/Alaska Native' foods as a seperate food group?

I was recently looking at the USDA Nutrient Database and I noticed that they categorized 'American Indian/Alaska Native' as a separate food group. For example, what is the difference between 35137 - Cornmeal, yellow (Navajo) and 20020 - Cornmeal, whole-grain, yellow?

I am by no means arguing against this distinction, I am just curious as to why it exists.
