Editorial: NIGC should interfere in tribal dispute
Facebook Twitter Email

There are "100 million reasons" for the National Indian Gaming Commission to intervene in a leadership dispute within the Meskwaki Tribe of Iowa, The Quad-City Times says in an editorial.

NIGC is concerned that the dispute is affecting the casino and the paper agrees. Because citizens are affected, the federal government should get involved, the paper says.

"By building a successful casino business largely on the gambling of Iowans, the tribe has given up a measure of their independence by encouraging an even more powerful force: A trade relationship with their Iowa gambling customers," the paper says.
