Fortune Bay Resort Casino is owned and operated by the Bois Forte Band of Chippewa.
The resort casino is located in the Vermilion sector of the Reservation, which was established as a permanent home for the Bois Forte people through an 1854 Treaty with the United States Government.
The Bois Forte Band is committed to growing the economic vitality of Northeastern Minnesota, and to that end, Fortune Bay Resort Casino is a true economic engine. It is the largest non-mining employer in the northern region of the state, with approximately 515 employees, an annual payroll of approximately $10,200,000, and nearly $2 million in benefits. Fortune Bay purchases nearly $22 million in goods and services each year from vendors, most of them local.
The Bois Forte Band is not only an economic engine for Minnesota, but also a good neighbor. The Band donates time, talent and treasure to local organizations and is dedicated to the mission of making Fortune Bay the finest year-round entertainment destination through exceptional amenities and quality guest services.
