Description

While Oklahoma Indian tribes earn more money than ever from gaming and other businesses, they continue to collect federal grant funds for housing, medical care, education and other needs at an increasing rate, federal records show. It turns out that there is no formula or relationship between a tribe’s ability to support itself and the amount the federal government decides to give it. Some of these grants, for housing and education, are required by treaties between tribes and the U.S. government, but many are not.
