The Nottawaseppi Huron Band of the Potawatomi shared $20.4 million in gaming revenues in Michigan.

The tribe contributed $15.4 million to the state. Another $5 million went to local governments.

"The success of our business ventures instills not just pride in the members of the Nottawaseppi Huron Band of the Potawatomi, but also allows for shared benefit across the community we have fostered here in southwest Michigan," Chairman Homer A. Mandoka said in a press release. "We have come a long way in a relatively short amount of time, and I can attribute that growth to the vast amount of effort and vision set forth by the tribe’s leadership."

Under the Class III gaming compact, 2 percent of net winnings from electronic machines at the FireKeepers Casino go to the community. Another 8 percent go to the state.

Since August 2009, the tribe has shared $100.3 million in Michigan.
