    I believe that, unless they have an arrangement to recognize permits with a state(s), you must receive permission from the tribal government to do so. Depending on the tribe, that might be simple, or it might be impossible. Any particular res you are considering?

  4. I'd check with the tribal rules.

    don't do it. it's a trick! . I go to cherokee alot and they're a gun friendly crowd. they even have shops with a sign that says something to the effect of "permit carriers, we welcome your guns. crimminals leave yours in the car." here's a # that can help.828-497-7000.you MUST attend a powwow while you're there. now you got me wantin to make another trip.

    Reservations are considered autonomous nations and tribal law is the rule. Many reservations accept the respective states CC permit or allow open carry. Some are not so friendly. If all your doing is travelling through on a state or U.S. highway you should be fine. If you wish to visit the interior the best thing to do is contact them directly and ask. While you may not be arrested for carrying on the reservation they can confiscate your firearms.

    Totally depends on the Reservation.

  9. All reservations have their own requirements, call the Reservation police department and ask. If you are caught with a weapon illegally plan on spending a good deal of time in their jail until the circuit court makes its way around. on the Navajo reservation could cost you a week or better before you even get seen

    Depends on the given tribe. If you're made and they do not allow it, they can impound your firearm and it will literally take an act of Congress to get it back if you get it back at all. I have not heard of a CCW holder being jailed by a tribe for unauthorized CCW. I have heard of quite a few incidents of them being trespassed from the reservation and having to jump through hoops to get their firearm back if they get it back at all.

    Do you have any specific instances of this? I do not believe that they have the authority to do that if you're not a member of the tribe from my understanding of the law. They can impound your firearm, trespass you from their land and turn you over to the county or State authorities for the offense. I've heard of quite a few instances of that but never imprisonment in the reservation jail especially by someone who is not a member of the tribe.

    I am not advocating unauthorized CCW on an Indian Reservation as I'm part Native American myself and have great respect for their heritage. I do advocate contacting the tribal police or government and finding out their law pertaining to lawful CCW and following their laws if you go on their land. If they don't allow it don't venture on their land.
