Yes, absolutely. What you need to know is that there are all sorts of parcels of "fee" land, or private deeded land, within every Reservations boundaries. The Federal Government passed many laws in the late 1800s and early 1900s that allowed for patents (the original deed) to issue on lands that were selected by individuals for private property ownership. Keep in mind that all private land within a Reservations boundaries ARE NOT the same. The most valuable and desirable fee land within an Indian Reservation would be patents issued to an Indian based on the General Allotment Act of 1887, also known as the Dawes Act. These parcels of land were issued to individual tribal members for private ownership (with all of the rights and privileges to transfer or sell their property). Since the land originally belonged to a tribal member, the Supreme Court found that the member's rights to use and enjoy the land would be seriously impaired without a share of tribal resources (water, ground and surface, minerals, access, and any other property right). These parcels of fee land have attached to them "all rights to the land or water that were vested in the original Indian allottee".
Other sorts of fee land that exist on Reservations were the result of patents due to other laws (Homestead Act, Desert Land Act, Mining Acts, etc.), and those patents were issued at the sufferance of the Indian Tribes. They do NOT have the same rights as properties that began as Indian Allotments. Due your research at the county records office. Find the original patent that established the land as private property (it will have been issued by the United States). That will tell you if the property is a Diamond or a Dud.... more
I don't know if it has a safe room, however the sq ft is listed between 1500-1700sq ft. It is a NEW construction and is really pretty.
