It’s no secret that the compact negotiations between American Indian tribes and states concerning gambling enterprises and other gambling facilities is contentious during the best of times. On the one hand, states are often reluctant partners who desire to get just as much benefit that is financial possible without allowing tribes to offer unrestricted gaming on their land. Meanwhile, the tribes are frequently unhappy about having to negotiate at all to create financial development to land that is supposed become their own.
That’s a pretty description that is good of relationship between New Mexico and the Pojoaque Pueblo tribe of Native Americans. Now, the 2 edges are operating under a concise that will last until 2015 june. However with that agreement running out in about 18 months, negotiations are underway to strike a new bargain and the Pojoaque Pueblo doesn’t think the state is dealing in good faith.
That’s why the tribe has chose to sue the state on the failure in negotiations. According to the Pojoaque Pueblo, their state federal government as well as in particular, Governor Susana Martinez’s administration is trying to get an illegal income tax without any new benefits for the tribe.
