Can I join an Idian Reservation? - July 4th 2010, 04:51 AM

Ok, this is probably a very stupid question, but when I was twelve, I was gonna run away and live on an Indian Reservation. I was kinda hoping they would take me out of kindness because as far as I know, Im one hundred percent white (My grandpa forgot a little bit of his ancestry, though). Is there any possible way of living on an Indian Reservation without being an Indian? Like, can you join a tribe?


If i was president Id sell ohio to canada and let them deal with their nonsense
Anything is possible with God. You just have to take a leap of faith.
Heads up... I barely use this site anymore. don't rely on me for help, ok? youll be disappointed.

No, you can't just join an Indian reservation. You have to be born into it.

yeah i am part black foot native and cree but i look white and my family on my dads side is so hard to trace due to my grampa being dead and my grandma was adopted, my moms side no one will give me the family tree for physicial proof i cant even get my card thingy to say im aboriginal...it sucks, but no you cannot just join a tribe especially if you are not native, also indian can sometimes be an offensive term to some.


The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows.
It is a very mean and nasty place and it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it.
You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't how hard you hit; it's about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward.
How much you can take, and keep moving forward.
PM me if you need to talk about ANYTHING.

No, you have to be born into one or the tribal elder has to accept you in... Very few non- tribal member get "accepted in".

Umm, depending on there by-laws, yes. But it would be the equivalent of getting the meddle of honor in the military, on a few people get it. You'd have to work your ass off for a long, long time to show him you really care about the tribe and what (insert tribe) tribe represents.

Build them a huge wooden horse, then hide in it and present it to them as a gift.

no, usually you must be a certain percent Idian to join a reservation, and it must be able to be traced. Also, it must be of that tribe or group of tribes.

My friend has an uncle that lives on a reservation for his government contract job, but it's temporary and in a trailer the US government. I think my sister is going to live off of the reservation with her boyfriend because he's doing dental work for the reservation.

You can certainly buy a house on the reservation and live there, but no. You can't join without being born in, or the tribal elder accepting you, which hardly EVER happens. Sorry kid.
