A: Well first, you will need to meet the requirements of NYS before you can even think about getting married.

If you cant find any Online, go to a historical museum and talk with historians who can pass along valuable info to you and also consider getting married outside of New York State.
There are no indian reservations in NYC. You probably mean in New York State.
There is a reservation on Long Island. There might be others upstate, but the one on Long Island is the only one I've heard of. It is a reservation of the Shinnacock people, and it is near Southhampton, NY.
You would need for New York City to HAVE an actual Indian reservation.
