Return of the Buffalo: The Story behind America's Indian Gaming Explosion

Synopsis

A small, poverty-stricken California Indian Tribe, the Cabazon Band of Mission Indians, successfully fought a long legal battle for the right to operate the business of their choice on their barren reservation--a gambling casino. This is their story, the authorized history of their "epic" struggle, climaxing with their victory in a 1987 ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court, the now-famous Cabazon Decision. Their defeated opponents included California's City of Indio and County of Riverside (called "one of the most racist in the U.S." by a non-Indian resident) as well as California and 29 other states that joined California's appeal.
