The Minnesota Chippewa Tribe, comprised of the Bois Forte, Fond du Lac, Grand Portage, Leech Lake, Mille Lacs, and White Earth reservations, is a federally recognized tribal government that, through unified leadership, promotes and protects the member Bands while providing quality services and technical assistance to the reservation governments and tribal people.
Who We Are
The Preamble to the Constitution of the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe sets forth the purposes, aspirations, and goals of the union of the six member reservations. The Preamble states that the six member reservations of the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe come together, "in order to form a representative Chippewa Tribal organization, maintain and establish justice for our Tribe and to conserve and develop our Tribal resources and common property; and to promote the general welfare of ourselves and descendants.” It is toward these ideals that the Tribe continually strives, and it is for these reasons that the Tribe exists. Tribal political action and the administration of programs and services are intended to help meet these goals. Four divisions work to ensure that programs operated by the Tribe are effective and efficient in the delivery of services to our membership. Tribal divisions include Administration, Education, Finance, and Human Services.
