Eleven Tribal Nations in Minnesota

In 2021, Minnesota Governor Walz signed a bill codifying government-to-government relations and Tribal consultation into law. The bill recognizes the unique legal relationship of the 11 Tribal nations; affirms Tribal sovereignty; and requires state agencies to appoint Tribal liaisons and attend Tribal-state relations training for state leaders and employees [verbatim from press release]. The Governor has now visited all 11 Tribal nations in Minnesota (11/30/2023).[1]:

  • Miskwaagamiiwi-Zaagaiganing (Red Lake Nation)
  • Nah-gah-chi-wa-nong (Fond Du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa)
  • Tinta Wita (Prairie Island Indian Community)
  • Zagaakwaandagowininiwag (Bois Forte Band of Chippewa)
  • Pezihutazizi Oyate (Upper Sioux Community)
  • Misi–zaaga’iganiing (Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe)
  • Gichi–Onigaming (Grand Portage Band of Lake Superior Chippewa)
