An agreement has been made between Arizona and the Hopi Tribe. Under the compact
the tribe will be allowed to operate up to 900 slot machines.
The question of the tribe developing a casino has been asked twice to Hopi
members. Once was in 1995. The second time was in 2004. Both times the tribal
members voted against the idea.
Opponents to to proposed gaming have stated that it would bring problems to the
tribe and that is is against the customs of their culture. Supporters believe
that a new revenue source is needed to help provide services for the tribe.
In 2019 the tribe's coal mine is scheduled to close. Close to 85 percent of the
tribes budget will be lost. An alternative source of income is needed to cover
their annual budget.
