Actually whites abandoning European culture and adopting Native culture has been occuring since first contact. If you read about Cortez's conquest over the Aztec from one of his officers, deGama I believe, you will read how Spanish castaways who landed on the Mexican coast not only adopted Native culture, but also warned Native allying themselves to the Spanish what would happen to them eventually AND refused to return to Spansih forces. In fact they ran away.

There are accounts during the French and Indian War of English captives becoming so assimulated into Native culture that some refused to return to their families, and when some were forced to return to their English families, ran away to rejoin their Native families. Good book on the topic uses the letters of one "captive's" family on why she wouldn't return.

Even in the late 19th and early 20th centuries you had captives assimulating into Native culture and refusing to return to their family. Andele the Mexican-Kiowa Captive is one book that comes to mind. Important note about the Andele book. Although the book was written when he was trying to become Christian and is written by a missionary with a bias, if you read the introduction, you learn that Andele eventually joins NAC.
