Summary
  • Indian Gaming examines the conflicts over American Indian tribes' gambling operations, focusing on tribes in New Mexico and Oklahoma. It places recent events in other states -- notably California and Minnesota -- within the perspective of historic Indian policy, states' rights arguments, and federalism. One of the results of these conflicts and arguments has been the development of a new strata of inter-governmental relations to the benefit of tribal autonomy which is fast approaching status equaling states' sovereignty within the United States federal system
  • Dale Mason demonstrates how, through their pro-gaming activities, Indian tribes act as both political entities and interest groups, while protecting their right to self-govern. He also reveals the role of United States Attorneys' discretionary authority on Indian lands and the role of tribal attorneys in Indian politics
  • Legalized gambling on Indian lands and reservations is an increasingly important component of tribal economic and political life. Although Indian gaming accounts for only 5 percent of all gambling in the United States, it has become the issue for tribes in the 1990s. It is a new source of tribal-state conflict and the debates will continue well into the twenty-first century
