Primary Goals/Functions          

The White Earth Land Department was established for the management and regulation of Tribal lands. Our objectives are to ensure the highest and best possible use exclusively for the benefit of the White Earth Band of Ojibwe. The Land Department's primary functions are:

  • The issuance of leases, including lake shore, business, residential and commercial.
  • Acquisition of land for the reestablishment of tribal ownership within the exterior boundaries of the White Earth Reservation.
  • Administer homesite assignments for tribal members.
  • Assist with right-of-ways.
  • Working with varying White Earth RTC departments to ensure positive and environmentally safe development for the well being of our communities.
