White men can never call themselves Native Americans, no matter how long their families have been on this soil. Just like they can never be called African Americans even if they had first lived in Africa.

I don't think being indigenous has anything to do necessarily with time. I think time is an element, but it takes more than just inhabiting space to acquire a sense of "innateness" or "intimacy" with an area. I think it takes a certain philosophy.

For example, you are only spending the night at someone's house if you don't contribute to the welfare of the home, financial responsibilities or maintenance. You become an owner or inhabitant when you take on these duties over a period of time. Just sitting in one place over and over again does not mean you own it or come from it.

It has nothing to do with time,if they were the first ones there and all died off within a year then they are still indigenous
