Gambling On A New Life
Copyrighted by Midwest Today, an article by Neal Lawrence.
A good article, comprehensive in scope. Gives statistics, history, and discusses Indian reservation conditions. Worth Reading!!
Don't Close Indian Reservation Gambling
A newspaper article by Tim Giago.
Describes the opportunity to improve conditions for the reservation life through revenues from gambling. With financial independence, such items can to improved and/or implemented: build housing for their elderly, provide scholarships to tribal members, invest in pension plans, build health clinics and expand their community colleges. (I discuss this topic in "The Positive..." section of my Gambling on Indian Reservations page.)
The Thinker: Indian Gaming
Apparently this is a newsletter published at Stanford called "The Thinker." This issue covers opinions on Indian Gaming. So here's a chance to read different opinions on the matter!
Where to Now?
This page appears to be a research paper done by a student at U. Texas. I did not see his name, but in the URL there is "~daniel", so I assume his first name is Daniel.
Here is his opening statement with links to the italicized:
"On the Native American reservations of the United States there are several problems that result from poverty. Statistical evidence also confirms a state of poverty that stems from unemployment. A solution is, however, achievable."
(The solution discusses gambling on reservations.)
Sam Ridgebear discusses traditionalism and the Indian Gaming Industry. Casino gambling is not as attractive as the traditional gamings of Indian culture (like the Hand Game, similar to "Button, Button, Who's Got the Button?", or Indian Relays, similar to horse racing), but it does bring in the much needed revenues. An interesting page to read, with links to other Native related pages.
Tribal Gaming Issues Explored by Pitzer College Students
A page developed by four students at Pitzer College.
Here is their introduction:
"For our final project, we researched the Cabazon Band of Mission Indians, part of the Cahuillas in Southern California. We determined that the tribal gaming debate is at the heart of the sovereignty issue. In our research, we found that among the Cabazons, and in other places, tribal gaming has had very positive socio-economic effects on the community. In 1987, the Cabazons actually set the pace for tribal gaming when the Supreme Court upheld that gambling on reservations is legal as long as the same kind of gambling is legal elswhere in the state. The case, California et. al. v. the Cabazon Band of Mission Indians, stirred up a lot of controversey and, subsequently, Congress passed the Indian Gaming and Regulatory Act (IGRA) in 1988."

A page of links to, I assume, personal interests' of Rokoske Keith. There is a section titled "The New West" with links to well developed pages: Native Web Home Page, All Links from Native Americans and the Environment, Bureau of Indian Affairs, and BIA Division of Energy and Mineral Resources Home Page.

I have not been able to access this URL address (it tells me to try again later), but the title makes me believe it is a worthwhile sight. Maybe you will make it through!
