Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well, if you aren't talking about original inhabitants when you say "native Americans," but as opposed to recent immigrants, I'd assert that being born in America makes you native.  Otherwise you are simply making up subjective criteria to assign degrees of American-ness to people, which is in itself subject to extremely subjective criteria.   And you can't have a very productive conversation once it goes down that road.

Come, my friends, 'Tis not too late to seek a newer world.
