Catawba Casino Complex

Recommended Posts

This casino owned by the Catawbas in NC is far from a sure thing.  I still think this will go all the way to the Supreme Court and it will be Cherokee vs Catawba.  This article does explain a little bit about the 1993 settlement how the Catawbas got a reservation but it banned casino on that property.   I just don't see how a casino in Kings Mtn is going to help people on the reservation outside of Rock Hill get out of poverty (unless it is just sending checks to someone vs a job and life building skills)   This thread will be open for years to come I am afraid.

Here is a good article that explains what happens with indian casino money, and it really varies based on the state, what games are offered, size of the complex (i.e. bingo only vs. casino resort).  And there are strict rules on how a tribe spends their net profits:

Not about a casino:

Question: who has been to the Catawba Nation lands? What is there to do that would patronize businesses for them (aside from any casino)? I see the Catawba Nation Cultural Center, but I'm not sure if they actually sell anything to make money there, or anywhere else.

I am not sure if they have any businesses per se on the reservation most are employed in Rock Hill or elsewhere.
