this has nothing to do with firearms, it is a question regarding indian reservations and their status in the US. ill give you my example: i was on the res and went to the police station to ask about obtaining a fishing permit. they told me i had to be an indian. so i went home and spent a couple hours on findlaw.com to research indian law. i found that they are not sovereing nations, they are rather communities that have been given the consideration to make their own local govt AS LONG as it does not contradict the fed or state consitution. so, they said i couldnt fish because i was not an indian, in other words, my race was the reason they would not sell me a fishing license---seemed discriminatory to me. (?) you tell me what you think, as i read the law, if they cannot contradict fed or state law, how can they do this?

It may be that they've also been granted exclusive fishing rights on their lands, or that reservation lands are considered private property (in which case they can do as they please).

well even if it is private property, which it is not, discrimination is illegal. it is a federal reservation, enforced by the fbi, baby sat by the bia. it is very confusing to fully understand the status of reservations. anyone have a clue?
