First Nations to manage Native casinos in Taiwan

The Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority has signed a deal to manage up to three Native casinos in Taiwan.

SIGA will start with one casino for the Thao Tribe, one of Taiwan's indigenous groups. SIGA will take up to 30 percent of revenues from the facility.

"This is a global industry," a consultant was quoted as saying. "This is expertise SIGA already possesses. We have all the trainers."

The Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations recently led a trade mission to Taiwan.
