Indian Gaming Law Speaker

11/14/2013 - 12:00pm

We are planning to bring in Katherine Spilde Ph.D. to give a presentation on Indian gaming.   The general focus of the presentation will be two pronged: One part will focus on legal aspects, mostly in light of how many tribal gaming compacts with their respective states are up for renewal.  The other focus will be on the social impact of tribal gaming on their respective communities.  Dr. Spilde has written academic articles about the positive impacts that gaming has on the welfare of tribes that have gaming, and the aim of the presentation is to dispel notions that Indian gaming is a joke as much of pop culture portrays it.
