Benefits of Native American Casinos

Matthew Wesaw, Chairman of
The Pokagon Band of Potawatomi

"We will assume the role of building a tribal government that will assist in breaking the cycle of dependency through improved programs in healthcare, education, housing, economic development, and increased stipends.  A tribal citizen, who has good self esteem, good health, an education, and a job, is a tribal citizen who has pride in being self sufficient and taking care of their family.  This can be a very difficult task and without strict oversight, we can easily find ourselves overspending if we move to fast." 

Native American casinos create programs like elders meals, transportation for home bound elders, burial for those that can't afford to have a proper burial, vocational training, educational programs, language education, police protection, fire protection, emergency services........
