Sunday on CW 14 Focus, host Robert Hornacek was joined by two guests to talk about the history and future of tribal gaming.
The guests talked about expansion plans at Oneida Casino. They also talked about how gaming revenue has helped Native American tribes.
Cornelius and Stevens, Jr. addressed some of the misconceptions of Indian gaming and explained why tribes are in the gaming industry.
"I go back to the United States Constitution," Stevens, Jr. said. "Tribes existed as governments long before then so, similar to the United States government, we're governments. I don't know if it's so much of an allowance as much as it is us asserting our rights as governments to provide economic development and other additions to support our communities."
