Mni Yuska means pure and clean water in the Dakota language. We believe in premium water, quality products, and excellent customer service.
SMSC Water Bottling is a department of the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community. We opened in 2008 to provide for the Community’s enterprises, departments, and various customers. Today, we continue to offer fresh and clean water that’s purified and bottled locally for area casinos, sports teams, weddings, special events, and more. Our bottles come in several sizes and quantities. We also offer custom labeling for special events or ongoing wholesale retail orders.
We guarantee high quality and premium taste. Our water undergoes several steps of processing, filtration and testing to make sure your experience is excellent—every time. Our quality is proven. We not only meet federal water quality requirements, we exceed them.
Our #SMSCgives efforts are part of the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community’s (SMSC) overarching goal to be a good neighbor. We have donated #SMSCgives bottled water to support emergency relief efforts, local fundraisers, neighboring communities, other tribal nations, and more. Since 2005, the SMSC has donated a total of over 15,000 cases of water to others in need. Our single largest donation to date was 28,800 bottles of water (1,200 cases) for the people affected by the water contamination crisis in Flint, Michigan.
Caring for Unci Maka, Grandmother Earth, is at the heart of what the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community (SMSC) strives to do. SMSC Water Bottling turns groundwater into drinking water, which is bottled and packaged on-site through a multistep purification process and reverse osmosis. Whether it is restoring prairies, forests, wetlands, protecting our aquifers, or encouraging native plants, animals, and insects to make our lands their home, the tribe employs multiple land stewardship programs to help fulfill this mission of being a good steward of the earth.
