The article discusses the impact of the gaming industry on the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community in Arizona. It was noted that the opening of the tribally owned Casino Arizona has provided opportunities for this once-impoverished tribe. With help from its casino profits, the tribe is now carefully planning its growth. Tribal President Ivan Makil pointed out a number of projects aided by gaming revenue, now underway at Salt River, which include the construction of new police and fire substation, and new junior high and high school facilities.
