Ches, I am going to recommend a book to you.

Roger Welsch, Embracing Fry Bread: Confessions of a Wannabe, Lincoln: University of Nebraska Press, 2012.

Mr Welsch is a folklorist who has a long involvement with several Native communities and is an adopted member of several families. He is also an unabashed wannabe who has some great insights not on Indian people but on the process of being assimilated and enculturated into Native communities. Instead of speaking for Indian people, who he points out can speak quite well for themselves, he speaks to people who want to connect with Native communities. There is wisdom in what he says for those us who are urban mixed-bloods.
