Tribe Wins Battle For Phoenix Casino, But Others Fear Consequences
22 Aug, 2014
The Tohono O’odham Nation’s effort to build one of the country’s largest American Indian casinos in suburban Phoenix, Arizona, may damage tribal-state relations and inflame the off-reservation gambling debate in Congress, according to tribal leaders and attorneys.
After five years of acrimonious legal warfare over the project, Tohono O’odham this month signed a joint services agreement with Glendale officials and are expected to break ground as early as next week on the $400m first phase of the West Valley Resort.
