Ultimately though this amounts to even less then the current reservation system (assuming this land is still part of the U.S. am thus subject to its law). As well even if you were given large swaths of land, ultimately your piece of land would be miniscule compared to that which is being settled. As well if this piece of land had any ability to harm the institution of settler colonialism it could through other mechanisms (such as zoning laws or even fabricated evidence or just outright force) be dismantled/reclaimed.
Yes, I would expect that if the government gave me land to help them settle/colonize, they would eventually take back the land after realizing that I am actively working against their goal rather than for it. But I could certainly slow them down in the process.
