    No, they didn’t choose to be placed on reservations, that was forced on them.
    In the past that was correct; however, the reservations are now little more than welfare havens for those who choose to live there.

      The ones near urban areas are cash cows for the tribes now.

      In the Phoenix metro area, there are two adjacent to it, the Gila River and Apache Santa Cruz. The Tonoho O'tham tribe even pulled a fast one to get in on the action. They bought land in Glendale, finagled to get it declared tribal (eg., reservation) land and slapped a casino on it.
      The Gila and Apaches have both built multiple casinos, entertainment venues, put up incredible numbers of billboards along highways that run through or adjacent to their reservation. They are scamming like there's no tomorrow.
      Any attempts to build next to their reservations on the other hand (read attempt to introduce competition) gets howls of protests about "sacred land" or other nonsense from the tribes.
      The tribal members get paid a serious cut of money from the casinos etc., operation. But, instead of it improving lives it has made most of their members more serious alcoholics, drug addicts, and welfare kings and queens. They get lazy and do nothing.
