Gambling with the Future: The Evolution of Aboriginal Gaming in Canada discusses the recent development of casinos and large-scale bingos among First Nations in Canada. First Nations in Canada have taken the example from Native American casinos in the United States as a key component for economic development in their communities. The book examines the battles First Nations waged against their respective provincial governments for the right to legally open their gaming operations. The chapters cover a brief history of gambling among First Nations; the social and political factors involved in gaming; First Nations gambling in Alberta; the early days of gambling in Saskatchewan and Manitoba; and the development of gaming in Ontario. Various gaming operations are discussed. These include The Mashantucket Pequot, Shawanaga/Eagle Lake, Mnjikaning First Nation, White Bear Casino, The Aseneskak Casino, South Beach Casino, Enoch Cree Nation Casino, The Tsuu T'ina Casino, The Stoney Nakoda Nation Casino, Blue Heron and the Golden Eagle, Dakota Tip, and Saskatoon Casino. This book is a current description about the gaming operations run by First Nations in Canada. Dr. Yale D. Belanger is an assistant professor of Native American Studies at the University of Lethbridge.
