Minnesota Superintendency

The superintendency was created in 1849 when Minnesota Territory was organized. It included the eastern part of present day North and South Dakota. The St. Peters Agency oversaw the Mdewakanton, Wahpetkute, Sisseton, and Wahpeton people in Minnesota. The Minnesota Superintendency was discontinued in 1856 and the St. Peters Agency was transferred to the Northern Superintendency.
