Tribal Sovereignty

As an integral part of our value to collaborate with the communities we serve, we collectively acknowledge that our service area falls within the traditional homelands of the Dakota people. These lands continue to hold great historical, spiritual, and personal significance to not only the Mdewakanton Band of eastern Dakota but to other Indigenous nations that still hold an affirmation to this valued and treasured landscape that we all share and occupy to date. This acknowledgment recognizes and supports the unique relationship that the state of Minnesota holds with Indigenous nations and by offering this land acknowledgment, we affirm Tribal sovereignty and hold ourselves accountable to the sovereign Indigenous people and nations we provide services to.
