The Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community is a federally recognized, sovereign Dakota tribal government located southwest of Minneapolis/St. Paul. Following a Dakota tradition of generosity, the SMSC is one of the top philanthropists in Minnesota and is the largest contributor to other tribal governments and causes across the country.
It is a strong community partner and a leader in protecting and restoring natural resources. The SMSC’s government and various other enterprises are collectively the largest employers in Scott County, MN, and attract millions of visitors to the region.
The tribe is run by a Business Council made up of three representatives:
Keith B. Anderson – Chairman
Cole W. Miller – Vice Chairman
Rebecca Crooks-Stratton – Secretary/Treasurer
