Session Title: It Takes a Village
Date & Time: July 27th 1:45 – 3:00 PM
Gaming came to tribes as a means of economic development and a resource for self-reliance, and with it brought additional challenges, such as addiction, to tribal communities and their neighbors.The socio aspect of the socio-economic impact or benefit has varied definitions.
There have been extraordinary advantages and accentuated challenges. When addressing the impacts of gaming, there is an important distinction between tribal and commercial gaming, one that requires a nuanced approach to address and heal both the tribal members and their neighbors. This approach requires a recipe of respectful restoration, stability of resources, community acceptance, and traditional healing.
Join panelists as they share their tribal perspectives working to restore communities and individuals while maintaining self-respect and position with respective communities.
