Welcome to the official website of the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community (SMSC). We are a federally recognized sovereign nation located in Scott County, Minnesota. We are dedicated to serving our members, creating strong partnerships, and protecting the earth's resources. Thank you for your interest in learning how the SMSC is working to ensure a healthy community environment and economy for generations to come.
Supporting the Dakota tradition of caring for the earth, the SMSC Organics Recycling Facility takes waste that would typically be put in a landfill and turns it into nutrient-rich natural fertilizers that are available to the public for gardening, landscaping, farming, and more!
