Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That hereafter any person who has heretofore made entry under the homestead laws on any lands embraced within any reservation ceded to the United States by the Indian tribes, and has paid for his land the sum of at least $1.25 per acre, shall, upon proof of such facts, if otherwise qualified, be entitled to the benefit of the homestead law as though such former entry had not been made; but the provisions of this Act shall not apply to any person who has failed to pay the full price for his former entry or whose former entry was canceled for fraud: Provided, That, in making any new homestead entry as authorized by this Act or the prior similar Acts of February 20, 1917 (39 Stat. 926), and February 25, 1925 (43 Stat. 981), such entry shall not include any land to which the Indian title shall not have been fully extinguished.
