Prairie Island Indian Community seeking federal trust for new land

 


The Prairie Island Indian Community, one of Minnesota's federally recognized Native American tribes, has bought a big parcel of land in the East Metro. Now the tribe has applied to put that land, 112 acres in Washington County, into federal trust.

A Minnesota law that allowed increased storage of nuclear waste at the Prairie Island nuclear power plant also allows the Prairie Island Indian Community to purchase up to 1,500 acres of land within a 50-mile radius of the reservation.
