Federally Recognized American Indian Tribes of Minnesota


All seven Anishinaabe reservations in Minnesota [today] were originally established by treaty and are considered separate and distinct nations by the United States government.[1]


The original Dakota Community was established by treaty in 1851....However, in the aftermath of the U.S.-Dakota [War] of 1862, Congress abrogated all treaties made with [the Dakota] and [they] were forced from their homes in the state.... [F]our communities were reestablished in their current localities by acts of Congress in 1886. The four Dakota Communities today represent small segments of the original reservation that were restored to the Dakota by Acts of Congress or Proclamations of the Secretary of Interior.[1]
