New Mexico Indian Tribes fight to stop Jemez Pueblo Casino
June 11, 2011
Plans for an off reservation casino have caused a controversy with New Mexico
Indian tribes. They are teaming together to stop the proposed plan.
The proposed casino will allow for a partnership with a Santa Fe art dealer and
the Jemez Pueblo in Northern New Mexico. The partners will build a casino hotel
near the New Mexico and Texas boarder. The proposal is currently being decided
on by the federal government.
The Jemez Pueblo also claim they have a connection historically with the land.
The plan is being opposed by the New Mexico Indian Gaming Association. The
organization represents operators of tribal casinos. Comments have been filled
with the Bureau of Indian Affairs by the group.
This is the second time this proposed project has tried to pass. The first time
is was rejected was under the Bush administration.
500 Nations is an independent directory and information service free of any gaming operator's control and not affiliated with any casino.
