Karuk Tribe moving toward first casino with NIGC approval

The Karuk Tribe of California is getting into the Indian gaming industry.

The tribe announced approval from the National Indian Gaming Commission to open a casino. Now comes the hard part, Chairman Russell Attebery said.

“With this comes a lot of additional work for our tribal council, staff and membership, but the first step has successfully been accomplished," Attebery said in a press release.

Council member Dora Bernal, whose primary focus is gaming, also welcomed the decision.
