FARMINGTON The Navajo Nation Gaming Enterprise today will present a $5 million check to the tribe.

The money represents strong performance in the gaming industry on Navajo land and a restructuring of the loans that funded the tribe's debut into Indian gaming more than three years ago.

The Nation took out four separate loans to fund its casinos, said Phefelia Bradley, government affairs manager for the Navajo Nation Gaming Enterprise. The enterprise oversees gaming on Navajo land and the development of casinos.

"Rather than pay four different loan payments, we restructured the loans to have only one payment," Bradley said. "Based on the restructuring, the interest rate was reduced and we were able to come up with an amount that we can pay back to the Nation."

The $5 million check is the first payout from the gaming enterprise.

Meanwhile we still lack everyday necessities on the rez.

5 million $$ was stolen by the tribal government while the people go without and rely on the US government to feed and cloth them.

I believe that the amount in the "discretionary funds" scandal was $36 million? Amoung other scandals.

78 Navajo Nation Council Members Accused of Fraud
Posted on July 30, 2011 at 3:00pm by Jessie Abrams
WINDOW ROCK, Ariz.(AP) A special prosecutor filed a lawsuit against 78 current and former Navajo Nation Council members alleging massive fraud in their use of $36 million in discretionary funds intended for Navajos in need.
The lawsuit filed Thursday accuses the council members of unlawfully taking about $36 million belonging to the deeply impoverished American Indian reservation from 2005 through 2010 to benefit themselves and their families.

The "necessities" that are lacking on the rez are a function of a properly organized and managed local government; paved streets, curb, gutter, sanitary sewer, clean water, street lighting, parks, electricity, natural gas, police and fire, commercial businesses, schools, medical care,JOBS AND OPPORTUNITY, etc.
.
.
You have to have PRIVATE OWNERSHIP of land, TAXING AUTHORITY, and at the very least, adherence to contract law. The Navajo Nation has none of these and therefore cannot supply the basics that virtually every other community in the country takes for granted.
.
.
In addition, you have to have a population concentrated enough in one place to make it economically feasible to build and maintain basic municipal services. You can't run an electric line or sewer 20 miles to serve one family in a doublewide. It's simply too expensive.
.
.
It befuddles me that Navajos can't figure out how cities actually work.

Did Russell Begaye and the Northern Navajo Nation Fair Board really blow about $60,000.00 on some 100th annual Fair magazines? And at least about $20,000.00 of that was casino money?
