isn't part of the casino monopoly here in mn so that bands can help themselves and other bands? if racino were passed in mn, it would create jobs and pay taxes. i know i can turn to posters to help me understand.

You probably could get a grant if you write a proposal for the need and if they find the need justifiable with reinforcement then you could get the grant....easy asz 1,2,3.....

Are these the Natives who are not benefiting from all the casinos make here in Minnesota? I am told by someone who works as an aid in school with the Natives, that they say why get an education as they receive more than enough from the casino. Why not give the working class those monies to use for their children's further education as there is not much free for those who work and are middle class, only those who are very poor. We the middle class do pay the majority of taxes so give us a brake.

yes! give us a break, and an education. lol, be happy your employed.
Always using a so and so for references is good. I don't get a percapita payment and alot of other tribes do not hand them out either, read book it might improve your outlook and motivate you to get off the soap box. stupid people are annoying.

Native people work too, we pay state taxes the minute we go into a store and buy something! the white people shouldn't have stuck on a reservation that has no resources or good land! now that we have casino's their all mad. white people are never happy until it benefits them! they have been breaking treaties forever, now they want a state run casino. too bad! greed is the word here to all of you that are hating on Native Pride!!!
