别号「万湖之州」(Land of 10,000 Lakes)的明尼苏达州,因其境内拥有12,000多座湖泊,故获得此一绰号。「明尼苏达」一字源于达科塔印地安语(Dakota:苏族Sioux印地安人),原是用来指称明尼苏达河,意即「映着天空云彩的水」(sky-tinted waters)。明尼苏达地区于1849年形成,原属西北地区的一部份,于1858年添加联邦。明尼苏达州的州花是粉色及白色鳯仙花,而其首府为圣保罗(St. Paul)

The "Land of 10,000 Lakes," Minnesota got its nickname because there are more than 12,000 lakes throughout the state. Its name comes from the Dakota (Sioux) word for the Minnesota River's "sky-tinted waters." The Minnesota Territory was formed in 1849 from what had been part of the Northwest Territory, and Minnesota joined the Union in 1858. The state flower is the pink and white lady's slipper, and the capital is St. Paul.
