MnDOT, FHWA and Minnesota tribes have agreed to combine their efforts in a coherent inter-governmental partnership to create more efficient, improved and beneficial transportation services
Our liaison coordinates with MnDOT regions and other tribal liaisons to ensure constant and effective communication with Minnesota tribes. The Tribal Liaison can facilitate meetings, negotiate intergovernmental agreements and help reconcile differences between MnDOT and Tribal Governments.
How we are working together

Indian tribal governments
There are eleven federally recognized Indian tribal governments in Minnesota. Each tribe is a separate sovereign nation, unique unto itself and distinct from all other federally recognized tribes. Each tribe has an independent relationship with the United States and the State of Minnesota.
MnDOT recognizes the unique sovereign status of federally recognized tribes and the cultural values of all American Indian tribes in Minnesota, and is committed to strengthening the government-to-government relationship with the tribes.
