Today the Sault Tribe is 44,000 strong. While the tribe’s headquarters are in Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., its economic impact extends for hundreds of miles. The tribe has landholdings, businesses, housing and other service centers throughout Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

The tribe’s seven-county service area is made up of the easternmost seven counties of Michigan’s eastern Upper Peninsula—roughly the area east of Marquette to Escanaba.
