Indian tribal governments
Eleven Indian tribal governments are federally recognized 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.
