Does anyone know of any times in history when people went native and fought for the indigenous they were sent to conquer? Basically, a true story behind Jake Sully's fictional journey?

Not sure of any specific cases, but a lot of Jesuits defended native populations against imperial governments during the exploration of the New World.

Hey, found one myself, John Brown John Brown (abolitionist) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Brown_%28abolitionist%29) . The people John Brown fought for, died for, were in worse shape than the Na'vi.

Before, during and after the Civil War didn't run away slaves co-exist and inter-marry with many Native American Tribes in the north and south and fight against the westward moving military/Settlers ? I thought major DNA studies have been done on and off Native American Reservations that shows African American/Native American DNA that goes back not just decades but CENTURIES back in time. I believe this is done through the mothers mitochondrial DNA. I have always understood that solders and settlers diaries reflect this as being commonplace in many areas of the country ! If there are any historians out there or if there are websites or books on this it would be great to know more about it.
