Had Espera Oscar DeCorti the right to call himself Native American?

This actor (better known as Iron Eyes Cody) was of Sicilian descent and had no Native American ancestors yet he claimed to be an Indian. 

How do actual Natives view him? Was he a real Native? Was he Italian/Sicilian? Both? Neither?

    He was a fake native.  You need to have the blood to be Native...

    That guy was an Italian American, an actor who took Native roles in film, nothing more.
