Default American Indians?

I read many posts here and I was wondering why no one has ever mentioned the American Indians in your area? Does anyone work on a reservation that likes it (teacher)?

Large parts of the four corners states (AZ, UT, NM, CO) are Indian reservations. Most of the Indians live on the reservations, and for the most part you've got to be Indian to live there. As such, it's probably not much of an issue on CD because most of the people interested in AZ or the other states will not be living or working on Native American lands. (I prefer the NA term.) So the reservations are there but most non-NAs probably don't spend much time there except on vacations, and BTW there are some really interesting places to visit on the rez.

So perhaps that answers your question, or ask a specific question if you want to know more.

I believe that a resident of a generic 'Rez' needs to either be a member of that specific tribe------or, at least married to a local.

Read that I doubt a Hopi would be welcome on the Navajo lands, etc.

Yes, that is what I was referring to. All reservation land is owned by the respective tribes. Non-NA cannot buy land there nor can they live there without tribal permission. I don't know of any instances of non-NA living on tribal land but I suspect there are exceptions.

I probably misunderstand what you mean by "generic rez" but every reservation is associated with a specific tribe.

Actually I'd love to live on tribal land, perhaps Monument Valley, but forget that because it ain't gonna happen. They don't even allow non-NAs to stay on the land during nighttime, except within the campground. Most beautiful place in the world IMO.

What do you suppose Monument Valley would look like if it were opened up to the general public.

I don't even want to think about it.

There are people of the medical profession and teachers that do live and work on the reservations that are not Native American.

There's not that many of them here in Prescott. I've met some and they are very nice people, but there aren't that many here. The most I've seen were in Tuba City and places in that area of Arizona.

You got that right!!! Just consider what they've done to Sedona and the Red Rock country. Everything that is not national forest is covered with houses and strip malls.
