Going Native

I've understood quite a lot of Europeans coming into America chose and preferred to live with native tribes instead of with colonialists, but for more extensive information does anyone know good studies on the subject, preferably on Internet?

1. The Voyageurs

were particularly known for this. Any studies of them would have more information.

3. Thanks for answers

 

Raleigh's "missing" colony was news to me.

Been looking also into how Finns and Indians got along in America, Forest Finns (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forest_Finns) who are of my Savo-tribe came to Delaware with Swedish expeditions. Both Forest Finns and Delaware tribes farmed with slash-and-burn technique (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slash-and-burn; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Sweden). Forest Finns excelled in building log cabins, which when built by Finns are always first saunas. Another common thing for local tribes and forest Finn settlers.

PDF on first Finnish settlers in Delaware:
