Prairie Island Indian Community
The Mdewakanton, “those who were born of the waters,” have lived on Prairie Island for countless generations. Located in Southeastern Minnesota along the wooded shores of the Mississippi and Vermillion Rivers, Prairie Island is a spiritual place for our people. Prairie Island owns and operates Treasure Island Resort & Casino. We call gaming the new buffalo because it has helped restore our self-sufficiency. It is responsible for improving life on the reservation, strengthening our Tribal Government, and helping preserve our culture.
