    This sparked my interest in another thread when someone mentioned that cars can't get repoed there. What's the deal? Are laws different in them? Are they dangerous areas? Are they fun places to be? What's going on in there? Do they still live the way they did in the Cowboys & Indians movies, or do they drive cars now?

    Don't blame me for not knowing. I'm from this place, after all.

    A lot depends on the reservation. I've never heard of not being able to repo on a reservation but it would probably need to go through the B.I.A (bureau of indian affairs).

    For the most part you don't realize you're even on one unless you see a sign or a casino... That being said, a lot of the reservations in the southern part of the country are incredibly impoverished. Not so much around here.

    I actually really enjoy the different cultures but they can be incredibly rude to white people sometimes.

    Cheap smokes,when I did smoke I'd buy cases and fireworks. I wonder how the Nation would be if they would of enslaved the Indians and forced the boons on to the reservations.

    I dated a girl from the Coeur d'Alene tribe when I was in high school and had my tires punctured twice when I was visiting her.

    is there any truth to the rumor that indians get a nice chunk of change when they turn 18?

    There's a huge casino locally that has been shuttered for months because two factions from the tribe went to war.

    They are dumps. The residents are entitled, drunk, heroin addicted assholes who have zero respect for the free housing, maintenance, healthcare and 75 grand per year they get for doing nothing.
