Mixing and assimilating – First Nations

I guess the biggest thing that struck me about all three accounts was that Whites being brought and assimilated into Native American communities was even a thing that happened. I think in all three accounts soldiers marrying Indian women are mentioned in passing, also obviously in Jemison’s book we see children being captured and raised. I really had no idea that this sort of cross-flow happened on any level let alone how common a thing it was. I also wonder if the reverse happened, if Native Americans were ever either captured or went to work as full time translators and became relatively assimilated into the colonist’s culture. Or if there was more movement one way than another.
