Gambling on Authenticity: Gaming, The Noble Savage, and the Not-So New Indian is a collection of seven essays edited by Julie Pelletier and Becca Gercken in this 2017 volume from the University of Manitoba Press. Rather than focus on economic development and politics, the editors turn their attention to Indigenous and non-Indigenous scholars who write about the gaming and casino impact on First Nations arts, literature and scholarship. They also include 2 case studies about Oneida and Cayuga gaming in the USA (It's a Question of Fairness: Fee-to-Trust and Opposition to Haudenosaunee Land Rights and Economic Development) and the Anishinaabe gaming at Rama Mnjikaning First Nation (Making Anishinaabe Bimaadiziwin: Uncovering Cultural Representation at Casino Rama). Essays include The Noble Savage as Entrepreneur: Indian Gaming Success; Reimagining First Nations Casinos: A Necessary Response to Ensure Economic Development; Casinos, Culture, and Cash:How Gambling has Affected Minnesota Tribal Nations; and Raised Stakes: Writing On / and the New Game of Chance. The volume includes an interview with Ojibwe painter Jim Denomie, and two pieces from Cherokee English Literature professor Scott Andrews.
