The White Earth Reservation is located in the northwestern Minnesota counties of Mahnomen, Becker, and Clearwater. The reservation is located 68 miles from Fargo and 225 miles from Minneapolis/St. Paul. Tribal headquarters are in White Earth, Minnesota. Never the historic homeland of any Ojibwe group, it became a reservation in 1867 in a treaty with the Mississippi Band of Ojibwe. The White Earth Tribal Council is the governing body and the Tribe is a member of the MCT. The Tribal Council consists of five members: Tribal Chair, Secretary/Treasurer, and three District Representatives. Non-Indian companies and Indian tribes have a unique opportunity to bring economic development to reservation lands that can be mutually rewarding for both. If the businesses are properly structured, many benefits are available.
White Earth Nation, Minnesota’s largest and most populous reservation, encompassing 1,300 square miles and serving as the homeland for over 20,000 band members. Situated in the northwest region of Minnesota, our home is filled with the natural beauty of lakes, rivers, forests and prairies. We are governed by a five-member tribal council whose overriding mission is to preserve, promote and enhance our quality of life.
