Part of the reason I'm thinking and asking about this now (when I won't be applying to law school until next fall) is because I was wondering whether volunteering for or getting more involved with the tribe in the next year would increase the viability of my applying as a Native American. From the responses I'm getting, it seems like a contrived one year immersion in tribal activities wouldn't get me very far for law school purposes?
Also, mpasi, the reason I would consult with admissions departments with law schools I'm not interested in would be because I don't want to make a bad impression on the admissions officers at schools that I would be applying to, which I might end up doing if even suggesting to them that I might apply as a Native American would be as offensive or ridiculous as some of you have suggested.
The last Miami ancestor you had was 6 generations ago. Give it a rest. Then retake the LSAT you pussy.
