I think it is up to the ceremonial leader or his/her society/clan/members to decide who can and who cannot attend their ceremonies.

There.

If the particular tradition allows "outsiders" to partake, then yes.

If the particular tradition does not allow "outsiders" then reasonable people should respect that.

All belief systems suffer from "wolves in sheeps' clothing" and "the blind leading the blind".

Many people want to belong to something to make them feel good, or feel good about themselves. Those who suffer in their spirit are empty, and look to many things to fill that emptiness, even changing religions, or trying many religions. These people can be exploited, but they also can be exploiters of other peoples' traditions.

One other example

One powwow I attended, a Native man at one of the drums got up to a microphone to give thanks, publicly, because he had been very ill (cancer I heard) and being at the drum had healed him.

That in itself is beautiful, and powerful...but all the non-Natives that heard his testimony are now intrigued....drawn in..., and those who seek healing (real or psychosomatic) may start doing inappropriate things.

Well I think non native people should be able to join our ceremonies.
Its all about learning from one another and building good relationships, I personally would like to experience a different culture, it gives us as people a better understanding to one another.
So heck yes!! :)
