A Native American tribe is doing exactly the opposite of what you'd think they'd do: they're kicking people out of the tribe, huge numbers of them, including people whose ancestors without question were part of the tribe. And the story of a white guy who only wants to date Asian women, who finally convinces one to marry him: then has to adjust to the reality of a real actual Asian woman in his life. The phrase "finding your tribe" is a total cliché — but one that does apply to certain situations.
