Minnesota Department of Education, Indian Education

The Minnesota Department of Education, Office of Indian Education, provides information, resources, support and oversight to district, charter, and tribal contract schools throughout the state of Minnesota…Our goal is to provide meaningful, intentional, and targeted educational opportunities to every American Indian student, while at the same time fostering cultural identity and pride.

Independent School District 622, American Indian Education

This curriculum was gathered and developed from many wonderful people both past and present who shared their knowledge with us. We owe whatever success we have to their generosity and wisdom.

Minnesota Humanities Center

The Minnesota Humanities Center is a statewide nonprofit and full service event center located in St. Paul, Minnesota. We collaborate with organizations and people through education, partnerships, and public programs to inspire community conversations, forge deep connections, and illuminate authentic, diverse voices across the state — especially those left out, marginalized, or otherwise absent from our education and public awareness.

National Museum of the American Indian – Smithsonian Institution

NMAI is committed to advancing knowledge and understanding of the Native cultures of the Western Hemisphere through partnership with Native people and others. The museum works to support the continuance of culture, traditional values, and transitions in contemporary Native life.


Minnesota Indian Tribes

In Minnesota, there are seven Anishinaabe (Chippewa, Ojibwe) reservations and four Dakota (Sioux) communities. Find links to the web sites of those communities that have web sites. Also included are links to other valuable resources.

National Congress of American Indians (NCAI)

Founded in 1944, the National Congress of American Indians (NCAI) is the oldest, largest, and most representative American Indian and Alaska Native organization serving the broad interests of tribal governments and communities.

NCAI, a non-profit organization, advocates for a bright future for generations to come by taking the lead to gain consensus on a constructive and promising vision for Indian Country. The organization’s policy issues and initiatives are driven by the consensus of our diverse membership, which consists of American Indian and Alaska Native tribal governments, tribal citizens, individuals, and Native and non-Native organizations.

New Native Theatre

Based in the Twin Cities, New Native Theatre is a new way of looking at, thinking about, and staging Native American stories. Created in 2009 by playwright, Rhiana Yazzie, NNT produces, commissions, and devised authentic Native American stories for the stage which means NNT’s artists are intricately connected to the concerns and voices of their communities. NNT’s plays are shorthand meant to be played for its most vital audiences, Native people, because when specific stories are made for Native community itself, they become undeniably powerful for the broader community, too, no translations required.
