Inger is an unincorporated community and census-designated place (CDP) in Itasca County, Minnesota, United States, along the Bowstring River of the Leech Lake Indian Reservation. As of the 2010 census, its population was 212.
In Ojibwe, the community is called Chi-achaabaaning, meaning "by the Big Bowstring" due to its location along the Bowstring River. The village is located in the former Inger Township, which reverted to being unorganized. Named for one of its pioneer settlers, a post office was in operation from 1912 until 1955.
