Forgive my ignorance as I leave on the East Coast and Native American Reservations are not even in our vocabulary for the most part.
I'll start by saying that I understand what a Reservation is and that you cannot dig/mine for gold there, but can you actually search or drive around in the reservation with no consequences?
Second...you see the Navajo Off-Reservation Trust Land...What exactly does that mean? Does it hold the same restrictions to someone not of that tribe (like me) as an actual Reservation does? I looked it up and saw that the Government owns it, but it got cloudy after that.
Most of my concerns are with say...Metal detecting, prospecting/mining gold/driving through these areas freely/searching in these areas freely(without disturbing the land)/or free camping on either out of say RV or SUV camper type.
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated in helping me understand how all that works out there.
