New PDF release: The New Politics of Indian Gaming: The Rise of Reservation

By Kenneth N. Hansen, Tracy A. Skopek

The introduction of gaming on Indian reservations has created a brand new form of tribal politics over the last 3 many years. Now armed with frequently great monetary assets, Indigenous peoples have adjusted their political techniques from a spotlight at the judicial approach and the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) to at least one that at once lobbies country and federal governments and non-Indigenous electorate. those strategies enable tribes to play an influential position in shaping nation and nationwide rules that have an effect on their specific pursuits. utilizing case stories of significant Indian gaming states, the contributing authors learn the interaction of tribal governance, country politics, and federalism, and illustrate the emergence of reservation governments as political energy brokers.

The latter are roughly evenly split between hard and soft contributions. Perhaps because soft money was ending after 2002, or perhaps because tribes perceived that targeted contributions to specific candidates reaped greater benefits, the relative proportion of the two changed dramatically from 2000 to 2002, with hard money increasing from 28 percent to 56 percent of contributions.

According to the court opinion, “igra does not require a state to negotiate over one form of Class III gaming activity simply because it has legalized another, albeit similar form of gaming” (Rumsey Indian Rancheria of Wintun Indians v. Wilson 1996). Forced back to the negotiation table, Indian tribes pinned their hopes on a compact under negotiation with the Wilson administration.
