Featured Tribal Nation Resource

Understand Native Nations

A campaign to improve the Native American narrative in Minnesota schools. Tribes are modern, thriving governments, and Native Americans make important contributions to our state every day. But most Minnesotans have little or no in-depth understanding of the state’s tribes, their history, governments, and culture. By sharing accurate information through a dedicated campaign in Minnesota’s K-12 education system, we can improve younger generations’ understanding of the state’s tribes and Native peoples. Understand Native Minnesota is supported by the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community.
