    Default What Are My Rights in an Indian Reservation

    Hi there!

    New here to these forums. I would like to ask you the following questions:

    Does the United States Constitution fully apply in an Indian reservation? What are my rights? For example: can a security guard search me (my clothes)?

    Thank you!

    Are you an Indian? Tribal law generally is Exclusive in jurisdiction. This might help aside from sorting through years of case law.

    However, a private security guards search probably is not constrained by any search and seizure law similar to our 4th AM. Even in the U.S. independent security agencies are exempt. I do know the 4th applies in Porto Rico as far as government searches go.

    Were you at a Tribal casino when searched?

    When you are on a reservation it's like a foreign country. They make the rules.
