MAST's mission is to "advance, protect, preserve, and enhance the mutual interests, treaty rights, sovereignty, and cultural way of life of the sovereign nations of the Midwest throughout the 21st century." The organization coordinates important public policy issues and initiatives at the state, regional and federal levels, promotes unity and cooperation among member tribes and advocates for member tribes.

MAST is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of the Tribal Chairperson, Chief President, or Chief Executive of each member tribe.  Four officers are elected  from among the Board of Directors; a President; Vice-President; Secretary and Treasurer. 
 

Current MAST issues and activities include: 

  • Protecting Indian economic opportunity Protecting Tribal sovereignty and self- government.
  • Protecting the rights of individual Indians and member tribes pursuant to treaties with the United States.
  • Protecting Indian lands, including the rights to place lands into trust, and protecting tribal environmental authorities.
  • Improving education for Indian children and adults, both on and off the reservation.
