The Minnesota Indian Gaming Association represents nine of the eleven gaming tribes in Minnesota . Its role is not to dictate policy to its sovereign members, but to provide a forum where tribes can exchange information and address shared concerns. MIGA also educates the public, the media and elected officials on tribal gaming, tribal governments and the nature of sovereignty. MIGA is fighting to maintain the current status of gaming in Minnesota, which is that the state does not allow for commercial gambling. The state currently only allows for government gambling, charitable, state-sponsored charitable and tribal gaming. We are opposed to any off-reservation expansion in gaming.
