A BIA officer stops at a ranch in Navajo land, and talks with an old Navajo Sheep herder. He tells the old Navajo man, 'I need to inspect your ranch for illegally grown drugs.'
The old Navajo says, 'Go-head, but don't go in dat field over der' as he points out the location with his chin.
The BIA officer verbally explodes saying, 'Mister, I have the authority of the Federal Government with me.' Reaching into his rear pants pocket, he removes his badge and proudly displays it to the farmer. 'See this badge?
This badge means I am allowed to go wherever I wish...on any land. No questions asked or answers given. Have I made myself clear? Do you understand?'
The old Navajo nods politely, says; ok den', and goes about his chores.
A short time later, the old Navajo hears loud screams and sees the BIA officer running for his life chased close behind by the old Navajo
mans prize bull. With every step the bull is gaining ground on the officer, and it seems likely that he'll get "horned" before he reaches safety. The officer is clearly terrified.
The old Navajo throws down his tools, runs to the fence and yells at the top of his lungs.....
'Your badge... Show him, your badge !!!'
