    Generally Indian Reservations are considered as separate nations. You will probably need to contact them directly and ask.

    My understanding in FL is that you cannot carry without tribal permission.

    Same, in OR. It's NOT U.S. land, and you're within another nation's borders while there. (Of course, taking the long view, none of this is U.S. land ... but that's another discussion for another forum.)

    Can you please provide some documentation to validate this. I have a copy of Florida "No Carry" locations on my desk and it says NOTHING about that. Which as we all no doesn't mean it isn't true.

    Arizona is the same way, You need permission to carry on tribal land,. Your don't have to worry as long as you are in your car and on the road, just applies if you stop and get out (from what I've been told).. I would check with the tribe leaders,.. Chief in command,. :-)

    He is stating simple fact that a Florida License does not work in a seperate coutry, which is what tribal lands are, they are not US soil.
    I know not what this "overkill" means.

    Here's my response to this on another thread:
    DaveTheWave,

    I have always been told that guns are pretty much a no/no in Cherokee, NC.
    I can't find anything in their law that addresses concealed carry specifically but it seems that the following is the governing authority on the matter. I don't have time right now to research it further but it looks like this is the answer to your question.
    The Cherokee Code: Published by Order of the Tribal Council of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians

    Quote:
    (a) It shall be unlawful to:
    (2) Carry a loaded firearm in a vehicle on a public road without lawful authority to do so; or to discharge any kind of firearm from a motor vehicle without lawful authority to do so; or to discharge a firearm from, upon or across any public highway without lawful authority to do so.

    You may be able to dig a little and find more specific info. Hope this helps.

    Cherokee Res.

    Federal Law prohibits any kind of weapon on any reservation. The ruling is like that concerning National Parks.
    If you go to that area, you might want to check out the Kilmer Memorial Forest. It is awesome. (no weapons though)!

    Please cite the Federal law.

    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Federal law also does not apply really to Indian Land. Its a differant country. Its like Mexico, the law in the USA does not apply there.

    I have worked with a number of tribal governments here in Oregon. I am a CCW carrier and each of the tribes had a different take on it. My advice is to contact the tribal government and ask what their policy is and follow it. Tribal police can be a bit independent and testy so don't mess with them

    All the tribal nations in the southwest allow for peaceful transfer through their lands. I travel the area a lot and have contacted each one individually. All the same. Stay on the highway and get the heck out as soon as you can.
