<< I was wondering how come so many Native
Americans I hear on the radio or on TV seem to have the same accent >>

This is a very interesting question addressed at length in this book:

William L. Leap, American Indian English. U of Utah Press, 1993.

I hesitate to summarize his findings in a sentence or two. Perhaps someone
else who knows the book can do so.
