Constitutional rights on tribal reservationsSubmitted by Plants on Tue, 06/26/2012 - 05:46
Hey, so I know that apparently citizens of reservations are under the rule of the tribe that the land is reserved for, but what about US Citizens on tribal land?
Do we forfeit our constitutional rights once we step onto a reservation despite the fact that it's US owned land, or does the bill of rights still apply? For example, if I was stopped by a cop on a reservation, do I still have the right to remain silent, refuse searches, etc?
I tried googling this first, but didn't find any concrete evidence for US non-tribal citizens.
Just to avoid confusion:
