    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****


    Hello, Jokies:

    I checked Google, and it seems that the definite "winner" is ON.

    "Mr. and Mrs. Smith work on an Indian reservation."

    I think that it would be nicer to use the term "Native American" instead of "Indian." (Perhaps we should reserve the word "Indian" for someone who comes from India.)

    Capitalize "Indian".
