I had one interaction with the tribal police -- and I was lucky. Got pulled over by Navajo police on my way from the Grand Canyon to Bryce Canyon (maybe on Highway 89 in AZ?), doing 95 in a 60 (a couple of years ago). Didn't even try to give him an excuse, but didn't get a ticket -- the cop just asked me to slow down and said, "I'm not saying you have to go the speed limit, but just keep it reasonable." Whew!

EDIT: Trying this same stunt and hoping to get as lucky is NOT recommended!

ohjustme07,

Yes, you may pm me.

And, just to be clear, I have never had any bad experiences personally on any Indian Reservation--but I also obey traffic laws and respect any law enforcement officer that I ever deal with, regardless of what agency they work for. I also have not been a victim of crime while travelling--including some travel in some very remote areas. But, again, I'm careful wherever I go. Personally, I think most urban and suburban areas pose more crime risk than way out in the sticks does--the difference is that if you get into a bad situation out in the middle of nowhere, you may pretty much be on your own. That's why a lot of natives who travel out in those regions on a regular basis often "pack." I won't editorialize if that's a good idea or not--I just know a lot people who do.

This is probably the key reason why I got lucky.
