Are there different laws governing Indian reservations?
On the reservations they have their own laws which they take
care of themselves. They have their own "world" with stores, gas
stations, etc. The "Council" dictates the laws and punishments..off
of the reservations, they abide by our laws. They are not obligated
to pay state taxes on anything (on the reservation). But revenue
made from Bingo or gambling casinos has to be reported since it is
Federal. However, they still much notify "civil" law authorities of
any felonious crimes, (murder). This is only what I've read up on
so far since we are studying it at the moment in school. Hope it
helps a little.
