HAPPY CAMP, CALIFORNIA Today the Indian Gaming Commission issued a positive determination for the Karuk Tribe to operate gaming facility in Yreka, California.
The Karuk Tribe is California's second largest American Indian tribe. Yreka is located along Interstate 5 in northern California, just shy of the Oregon state line.
“This is a tremendous accomplishment for the Karuk Tribe and an opportunity for the surrounding communities ”
said Chairman Russell "Buster" Attebery.
“ With this comes a lot of additional work for our Tribal Council, staff and membership, but the first step has successfully been accomplished.”
The Karuk Tribe has diligently worked on this for many years. In coming months, the Tribe plans to work with local, regional, and state officials to work out specific details.
According to Council Member Dora Bernal, whose primary focus while on Tribal Council has been to win approval for a gaming facility,
“we have worked very hard to bring gaming to the Karuk Tribe and the community. We believe this will provide critically needed jobs and business revenues to the area for Indians and non-Indians alike.”
