First Nations run casinos are a visible part of the Canadian landscape. Many view such enterprises as an important tool of economic development for impoverished First Nations communities, while others view them with suspicion. Beginning with the role gambling/gaming played in pre-contact Aboriginal society, the author traces the development of First Nations gaming institutions nationally, examines the political battles fought in each province to establish Indian run casinos, and discusses the agreements reached with provincial authorities to legally establish First Nations gambling institutions.
