Eklutna tribe seeks gaming rights

Tribal leaders near Anchorage are seeking a federal gaming permit to enhance economic opportunities. Eklutna officials want to operate bingo and pull tabs on an individual native allotment. If approved, it would be the first instance of land held by the federal government for an individual rather than a tribe under the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act.
