We are pleased to welcome you to the official website of the Sac and Fox Tribe of the Mississippi in Iowa/Meskwaki Nation. The Sac & Fox Tribe lives on a settlement. This is different than a reservation because the land is owned by the tribe on the settlement whereas a reservation is land set aside by the Government to allow tribes to reside. The Meskwaki Settlement is located in Central Iowa.
