Policy Issues

CNIGA's primary purpose is to protect the inherent sovereign right to have gaming on tribal lands. To that end, CNIGA takes policy positions on a range of issues that impact tribal government gaming on a state and federal level. These policy positions, derived from extensive direction from tribal membership, serve as the heartbeat of the direction that this tribal membership has taken.
