The Letter "I" Indian

There are numerous Indian Reservations throughout the United States. We have a reservation not too far from our own home. It is the Akwesasne nation. There are many clans among them. They sell tax free gasoline and cigarettes to native and non native customers. They also have high stakes bingo and a casino. I remember years back there were nightly gun battles over non natives coming on the reservation. The relations between the elected and traditional councils are strained by their differences; the influx of fast cash and a materialistic lifestyle brought on by the new economy only heightens the differences.


  1. I've enjoyed some great lacrosse games when the Thunder came to town.

  2. I never heard of this band of Indians, but I know there are numerous tribes all across the US. Actually, I'm glad they have their casinos to bring in more income. They kind of got the short end of the stick when the white man put them on reservations years ago.



Thanks for stopping by.
