What counts as Indian Country?
Indian Country, as defined by Congress in 1948 is:
a) "all land within the limits of any Indian reservation under the jurisdiction of the United States government, notwithstanding the issuance of any patent, and including rights-of way running through the reservation,
b) all dependent Indian communities within the borders of the U.S. whether within the original or subsequently acquired territory thereof, and whether within or without the limits of a state, and
c) all Indian allotments, the Indian titles to which have not been extinguished, including rights of way running through the same."
This definition of Indian country includes all land within an Indian reservation, even property owned by non-Indians.
