Native American society did not evolve with alcohol and so they never developed a tolerance like those of European decent. This may be why native americans seem to have more alcohol related problems.
I know that everyone says this, but it's not entirely true. Some populations may not have had alcohol, but some definitely did. Here is one example. http://food.oregonstate.edu/glossary/t/tiswin.html
Granted it was very low alcohol and their alcohol production technology was not as advanced as Europeans, but it wasn't entirely absent.
I really want to try making a beer this way, does anyone know where I could get some corn that would be suitable for soaking and sleeping on top of like this? Organic corn seed?
