 No. 98-50: Keweenaw Bay Indian Community v. U.S. - Opposition
Class I gaming encompasses "social games solely for prizes of minimal value or traditional forms of Indian gaming engaged in by individuals as a part of, or in connection with, tribal ceremonies or celebrations." 25 U.S.C. Such gaming is subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Tribes and is not subject to regulation under IGRA.
In September 1990, a tract of land in Marquette County, Michigan, was taken into trust by the United States for the benefit of the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community (petitioner).
Indeed, since Class III gaming is not authorized under IGRA on any Indian lands in the absence of a valid compact, petitioner's contention would have the implausible effect of rendering the special requirement of Section 2719 totally inapplicable to Class III gaming.
