    I think I'll move back to Canada when I turn 20.

    I have Indian Status, so I don't pay taxes.

    No sales tax, no income tax or anything.

    The only tax I'll pay is PST.

    Besides, Rochester chews.

    Jay Treaty of 1976.

    It's Canada and the United State's way of "making up" for all the crap they put Natives through.

    We also get Dual Citizenship at birth for Canada and the United States, and no border searches.

    There used to be about 400,000 Ojibwa people where Canada is now, as of 2004 there are 435 living in Garden Villiage, ONT, the only Ojibwa reserve we have.

    Not so sure I agree with the tax-free business, but the dual citizenship thing is pretty cool.

    I'm like 1/64 Cherokee, which would mean I would be 1/128 Canadian, and 1/128 American.

    In the 90's a friend of mine said you could get a tax free carton of cigaretts from an indian reservation for 10 bucks. I don't smoke, but as far as I know, michigan taxes have driven the cost of cigarets up to about 65 bucks or so per carton. I don't know much about Indian laws, but they sound nice.

    All Native American lands, (i.e. - reservations), are considered their own nations. They don't fall under the legal or tax jurisdiction of the U.S. or Canada. I guess this applies to their citizenry, as well.
    That's gonna leave a mark.

    You want to move back until you realize ordering bike stuff, tax amounts to 0.000000000001 of the price of getting bike goods from the U.S.

    The prices here for bike stuff are usually x2 of that in the states.

    I think that means you can come across the border, buy your bike stuff in the US and go back to Canada, tell the customs pale face to piss off and keep going w/ no duties. Awesome deal.

    How does the Department of Homeland (in)Security feel about this? From what I understand, it's a pain in the arse to get back into the US nowadays, even for US citizens. How does being an American Indian excuse them from these (supposedly) random searches at the border? A border crossing isn't the Reservation...

    Hey... do American Indians have to remove their shoes at the airport, too?

    You misunderstood...the guy has two passports--one Canadian and one US, so it's easy to go back and forth across the border. Just flash the approriate passport. It has nothing to do with his First Nation status.

    You got the right idea, but I don't have passports, I flash my Indian Status Card when going through the border.
