Tribal GIS Contacts List
By Dawn Sherk, White Earth Nation

Who do you ask if you have GIS data or coordination questions that involve Minnesota’s tribal governments? Thanks to colleagues from Minnesota's 11 federally recognized tribal governments that use GIS, you can now refer to a compiled tribal GIS contacts list.

This list provides a starting point to direct questions about geographic data and GIS technology. The contacts may be able to answer questions directly or they may refer you to another source of information. Users of this list should not assume that their specific data needs can be met through these contacts. The list provides links to tribal GIS webpages, as well as email addresses, phone numbers and mailing addresses. MnGeo hosts the page and will ensure that the information is updated periodically.

Many thanks are due to the contacts for their willingness to assist others. This list should help reduce the time that people spend searching webpages or calling general information phone numbers and should also help increase communication among our state’s GIS communities.
