* CluelessDeputy: To begin with, the Ferg is something of a joke in the sheriff's office; Walt employed him as a favor to his father. However, while he is not much of a street cop, the [[TookALevelInBadass later seasons]] do show him to be a canny investigator.

* RunningGag: Longmire does not own a cellphone but his people are often able to reach him -- by calling the cell phone of the person he is with at the time. This once occurs while he's in the middle of a Cheyenne ceremony at a lodge and one of the Cheyenne's phones goes off. Played with when Longmire asks to borrow someone's cell phone, causing Henry, Cady, and Vic to shoot shocked looks at each other.

* SuicideByCop: [[spoiler: Barlow Connally]], and Walt says as much in the final episode of season 5. What Walt doesn't know, is it was part of a larger plan.
* TallPoppySyndrome: A VictimOfTheWeek was a Cheyenne man who left his tribe, got a college degree, married a non-Indian and then decided to come home so he could help others out of the crippling poverty that plagued the tribe. Quite a few of the Cheyenne considered him a traitor who sold out to the white man and was acting like he was better than them. He ended up being force fed alcohol and painted red so he appeared more like a 'real Indian'.
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: The Ex-Reservation Sheriff, despite being clearly corrupt he seems to still be well liked among the Reservation Cops and other Indians simply because he is an Indian.

** Season 2 finale gives us a few more details. [[spoiler: Walt tracked the guy down, but he and a few friends of his damn near beat Walt to death. So Henry goes to Denver, finds the guy and tells him he's a dead man, then sends Hector, a local thug from the rez, to handle it. But Hector isn't a killer, and just kicked the guy's ass and took some of his teeth to give to Henry. Teeth that Detective Fales finds, and thus has Henry arrested. So the real killer is still out there, Walt's best friend is more than likely going to prison for something he didn't do, one of his deputies is being stalked by a man from her past, and Branch got shot out on the rez. Oh, and Walt also learned his wife's death was quite possibly a paid hit. Walt's episode ending office trashing is entirely justified under the circumstances.]]

After it is told to him that it was a murder he tries to make it look like it was Nighthorse and then try to make it Walter was going rogue to get him. Then when Longmire confronted him, he tried to frame Longmire for killing him but then killed himself rather than let him take him to a hospital.]]

* EverythingIsRacist: Essentially 99% of every non-white character will spout something about how all the problems are because of white people. Or fall back on SinsOfTheFather towards white people who aren't racist. Though the Cheyenne certainly have some legitimate long-standing grievances.

Must have something to do with Longmire [[NoodleIncident arresting he tribal police chief]], [[DirtyCop who was running a protection racket on the Rez.]] Things are so bad that he has to sneak onto the reservation at night in the back of a pickup truck just so he can speak with a witness who lives there.

** Inverted when the tribal police are nice to them and ask for his help. Longmire and Vic suspect that they are about to be set up for something bad. They are proven right when Longmire discovers that [[spoiler: the tribal police chief moved a dead body just outside the reservation border so Longmire is the one who has to investigate a politically sensitive murder that could scuttle his chances at re-election and is also a proverbial hot potato for the Tribal Police]]

* MalcolmXerox: Jacob Nighthorse is an Indian version. He is always quick to blame white people or call Walt (or anyone against him) a racist. In fact it is revealed in Season 4 that he actually used to belong to a Indian Group similar to the New Black Panthers.
* MaliciousSlander: Jacob Nighthorse, after being shot at, has a news conference where he blatantly accuses Walt Longmire of attempting to assassinate him without any evidence.[[note]]It wasn't him[[/note]] He never seems to suffer any backlash for this illegal action.
* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: [[spoiler: David Ridges]] claims to have used bad medicine on Branch when they meet again, "counting coup" with him by "touching" him three times, as old Native American Dog Soldiers used to do: first, by shooting him and touching him with a crow feather laced in peyote, to take his courage, then reaching out in his dreams and tricking him into [[spoiler: strangling Cady in a peyote-induced hallucination]] to take away his peace, and finally taking that picture in a bar with both of them in the frame that then deleted itself to take away his soul. Indeed, Branch's sanity gets worse and worse as the season wears on, but when Bridges is dead, he very-quickly comes back to himself. On the other hand, nothing of what is seen ''can't'' be explained by Branch just losing it as [[spoiler: a supposedly-dead man]] repeatedly mind-screws him.

** Played a bit straight with Hector though, minus the traditional garb. He's an enforcer for the local Cheyenne, has a constant look of stoicism on his face, speaks in somewhat simple and old-fashioned terms. However, as Walt himself points out in the Season 2 finale, he's [[spoiler: the only one whose conscience wouldn't allow him to play judge, jury, and executioner of Walt's wife's killer]]

* BackFromTheDead: [[spoiler:David Ridges]]... maybe. In the season 2 finale, [[spoiler:Branch goes to the rez to interrogate Ridges for sabotaging Cady's car, only to learn he's committed suicide and Jacob Nighthorse has ceremonially burned the body. However, when Branch goes to collect ashes for DNA testing, he's assaulted and shot by someone he swears is David Ridges. During surgery, a peyote-laced feather is found inside Branch's wound and DNA tests on the ashes confirm they belong to Ridges, so Longmire thinks Branch simply hallucinated his shooter's identity. However, Branch conducts a test of his own, using a rabbit, his own blood and hair samples, to create more ashes that come back positive as belonging to Ridges. On top of that, Hector positively ID's Ridges as his killer before he expires. However, both Branch's mental state and Hector's condition--scalped, shot, and bleeding to death--cast doubt onto whether or not Ridges really is alive or if the power of suggestion is in play. Ultimately proven right at the end of "Harvest."]]

** Jacob Nighthorse and Barlow Connally will cheerfully screw each other over in any way they can, no matter how minor. [[spoiler:Subverted a bit when it's revealed Barlow paid Nighthorse to kill Walt's wife, and that he's also been doing business with Nighthorse's shell companies in return. Doesn't make him like Nighthorse any better, though.]]
