Welcome to the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community
Since time immemorial the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community homeland has been in Minnesota. As a federally recognized, sovereign Indian tribe located southwest of Minneapolis and St. Paul, the SMSC provides services for its members in the areas of health, education, and general welfare. With a focus on being a good neighbor, good steward of the earth, and a good employer, the SMSC is committed to community partnerships, charitable donations, a healthy environment, and a strong economy.

With more than 4,200 employees, the SMSC and its enterprises are the largest employer in Scott County, providing good benefits and a good living for its workers. The SMSC is a strong contributor to the local economy as the owner and operator of the SMSC Gaming Enterprise (Mystic Lake Casino Hotel and Little Six Casino) and non-gaming enterprises including Dakotah! Sport and Fitness, Playworks, Wozupi, The Meadows at Mystic Lake, Mazopiya, and other enterprises.

The SMSC has also donated more than $262 million to organizations and causes since 1992, funds its own infrastructure, and voluntarily contributes to regional infrastructure such as roads, water and sewer systems, and emergency services. As a sovereign nation, the SMSC interacts on a government to government basis with local, county, state, and federal units of government.
