Indian Gaming is a relatively new and innovative way that many Native American tribes have turned to that enabled them to move towards economic development as one strategy to become more self sufficient in the post colonial era. However, there are many negative impacts on Native American cultures that accompany the development of a casino on Native American lands. The purpose of the following research is to outline the cons of Indian gaming and reveal the affects that it has on Native American peoples and their cultures. Although Indian gaming has brought a lot of opportunities to a lot of tribes, there are detrimental effects that do need to be addressed. One important issue is the loss of language and culture among tribes that own casinos and how Indian gaming plays a part in this.
