Are there non-Indian reservations?

Hypothetically, could I make my own reservation out of a few counties for myself if the state or federal legislatures agree?

Update:

I don't care if you're an Indian, I want to know if I can make my own non-Indian reservation.

Update 2:

"Oh, by the way, I do."

You sound like someone who has no friends.

    If you can get the state and federal governments to agree, then go right ahead. You would need the support of the legislature and governor or president. I'm sure somebody would sue, so you need the courts on your side also.  Seems easy.

    By definition a physical reservation is "land managed by a federally recognized Indian tribe under the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs."

    Do you qualify?  I suspect, hypothetically, that you do not.

    Oh, by the way, I do.

    🥴 Yes.

    People can actually start their own cities. 

    No in the sense that its not reserved for a select community.
