Yellowstone season four is in the making for Paramount Network and the series follows the Dutton family at the Yellowstone Dutton Ranch. At the end of season three, fans were left wondering if John Dutton (played by Kevin Costner) had survived a shooting. Fans think he may hand some of his land over to the Broken Rock Indian Reservation and has explored the theory.

Will John Dutton sell his land to Broken Rock Indian tribe in Yellowstone?

There has been an ongoing dispute between the Dutton family and the Broken Rock Reservation across the three seasons of Yellowstone.

The Broken Rock Reservation is an Indian reservation which is led by Thomas Rainwater (Gil Birmingham).

He has high hopes for the land, but Dutton, who is his neighbour, does not agree with the developments.

Rainwater has plans to expand the reservation and take back some land which he believes is rightfully theirs.

Some fans think Dutton may learn to collaborate with Rainwater in season four and will hand over some of his land to him.

ObviousCamera said on Reddit: “I believe John Dutton will sign over the part of the Yellowstone currently considered for development of a new city to the Broken Rock Indian Tribe.

“This would prevent the land being taken over by eminent domain, John Dutton preserves the nature reserve and I‘m sure he‘ll work out a deal for his cattle‘s grazing rights.”

Fans were quick to support the theory, saying Dutton and Rainwater should definitely be working together.

Dutton had talked about handing the land over to his grandson Tate (Brecken Merrill) who is partly native Indian.

His mother Monica (Kelsey Chow) is married to John’s son Kayce (Luke Grimes), so John may wish to keep the ranch in the family while protecting the natives.

Jo-porter-39 said on Reddit: “Dutton sells his land to Rainwater. Rainwater petitions to the federal government to include it to their reservation on the grounds of traditional territory.”

Other fans have said it would be easy to combine the two opposing groups together to overthrow those who want to develop the land.

JG045 said: “Combining easy to do as you have seen how over the seasons John is working with Rainwater to preserve the land.

“The only way out of this I think is for John Dutton to sell his land to the Indian Reservation and still gets to run his cattle. Kayce and Monica’s marriage was a foreshadowing symbol of the two combining.”

Viewers agree the coming together of two groups with Kayce and Monica’s relationship marks the start of a larger collaboration.

Tontamae said: “It’s the only end game. Tate and any future children between Monica and Kayce are the only Duttons left, and since they belong to the tribal family and the Dutton family the land can become part of the reservation and still be Dutton land.”

Paramount Network shared a video of the meeting over the Yellowstone Ranch’s future on YouTube.

The video revealed how airport and runway plans have been approved for the land.

Jamie Dutton (Wes Bentley) stepped in and said if the opposition was looking to buy land off Yellowstone, it would need to be discussed with him.

Jamie said he approved the sale of part of the land for use as an airport otherwise the ranch would lose money.

Fans will have to wait and see what happens to the ranch in season four, which will return in 2021.

One said on Twitter: “So I know I’m a little late to the party here but I just finished the season three finale of Yellowstone and how the hell am I supposed to wait until season four, and what kind of ending is that.”
