Mysteries Set on Native American Reservations

There are some great series about and featuring Native Americans. The most famous, of course, are Tony Hillerman's Navajo mysteries. Here are some other well-done but lesser-known novels featuring tribal police and (in most cases) reservations.

Elaine Thanks for your contributions, Alice and Angela. I have some new suggestions based on them! Bone Game sounds especially interesting. I find it interesting that two of your books involve the Choctaw nation. That's not the nation I would predict to be commonly written about. I'm pretty sure there are likely more written about the Navajo and Cherokee nations than any other.

I myself live about 5 miles from the headquarters and grounds of the Iowa tribe. They are a really small tribe. I've also never seen any fiction involving Pawnees or the Osage nation. The Pawnee tribe doesn't surprise me, the Osage nation does surprise me.
