Do the Navajos really own the land, as a tribe, or nation? That's interesting, in my country the Same people don't own any land as a tribe (they can own land as any private person can do of course) but they have exclusive right to keep reindeers in the whole Sapmi area, which is the northern half of my country, whoever happen to own the land (the mountain areas are owned generally by the state, the forests mainly by big companies but also farmers). And all land is free for everybody to visit, pick berrys or mushrooms, put up a tent for a few nights as long as you keep away from private houses.. And you can take photographs.

The Federal Indian Reservations are held in trust by the US government, and the federal government is responsible for protecting tribal rights, lands and resources for the tribes (and the tribes themselves can generally use the lands as they see fit). It can be a bit complicated because of individual land grants and private ownerships (some by non-Indians) that predate the establishment of the reservations. The Tribes and Nations practice various degrees of administrative autonomy; some operate their own law enforcement, for example, while others let the BIA's own police force do it. The Federal Indian Reservations are generally not subject to state or local government laws.
