Tribal Nations in Minnesota

There are 11 federally recognized Indian tribal governments in Minnesota. Each tribe is a separate sovereign nation with its own government - 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. Minnesota recognizes the unique sovereign status of each of the 11 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.

We encourage you to visit the official websites to learn more about each Tribal Nation
