Gun Lake Potawatomi Casino

Is under construction in Wayland Township, located between Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo in Michigan.  It will be 83,000 square feet, and is scheduled to open at the end of this summer.

750 casino workers, 1,000 spin off jobs, 1,200 slot machines and 36 gaming tables.  The Gun Lake potawatomi have had to fight since 2002 to be able to open this casino to support very needed programs for the potawatomi people.  Programs like elders care, education, police protection, fire protection and cultural development.  I am so excited for them and what it means to them because they will have money to develop programs that will help all Native Americans.
