Indigenous Religions

Indigenous religions are tied to their native cultures and habitats. As such, it is worth asking: should non-natives (to an area) be allowed to practice the relevant indigenous religion?  Does permitting such practices (by non-natives) invite the possibility of natives being insulted or their religious practices becoming objects of entertainment or tourism? Or are there particular circumstances (such as genuinely joining the pertinent culture) that would deem it acceptable for a non-native to engage in an indigenous religions practices?

In a clear, carefully written discussion post, take a stand on this issue. Whatever shape your answer takes, it should be informed by Michael Mollys chapter two (entitled Indigenous Religions). And though not required, you might also do some independent research regarding one or more specific indigenous religions, to serve as examples for helping to make your case.
