1. The Oglala Tribe will never be able to recover from this one.

Question is,will they as a Tribe loose their only out side source of income,and that being their Casino?

2. I don't know much about how situations like this are handled,

but I doubt that the casino is at risk. There is definitely some negligence occurring within the corporation, but they may have some insurance that would mitigate that damage. The investors in the bonds are probably going to take the biggest hit.

I'll try to keep up with this story, but please post anything that you might hear.

3. What is so sad,the Tribes are under

so much stress because of the Federal Government's lack of oversight on their behalf. Since the Rethugs gained the Majority in the House,Indian Affairs has become a dumping ground for their Friends and Relatives. Mostly to make sure Native Tribes do not push back against Corporate America. Especially the Extraction Industries.
