Question ID: 785861
I live and work in Alaska but I am a member of the Acoma Indian Tribe
in NM. I was raised on the Acoma reservation but put myself through
school and moved on years before Acoma gained a large casino.I have
two children, we all have B.I.A. cards showing membership to the Tribe.
The Acoma Tribe is small in numbers and the casino just off of I-40
looks like a slice of Las Vegas. Celebrities, traffic, marquee lights..etc.
Have any dividends been paid to tribal members? What about out of
state tribal members? Are there college funds for children? Are there any
legal directions to pursue or to take on? Do you know of legal council
who would look into this on my behalf for a percent? Thank you from Alaska.

Hi dso99577,

I'd start here for Contact Info:


And here:


It's almost a certainty there has been something paid out, sometime.
At a minimum there an ex-employee that *allegedly* has part of your

Ex-Casino Manager Accused of Embezzling

An ex-boyfriend of mine was part Alaskan Indian (don't remember the
tribe). We lived in Seattle. About every 2 years he would get a
corporate check for anywhere between $15,000 and $40,000 as his share
of the profits from the corporation that his tribe formed. Obviously
this Casino:

Sky City Casino making some money. You need to contact the Tribe and start
asking questions. The links above will give you a starting point for
contacting people. Even if you are not a shareholder right now. It's
very possible that all you have to do to receive shares is prove your
Acoma bloodline.

Good luck to you!

There is no answer at this time.

Hey there, Alaska, I don't know the answer to your question but may I
welcome you to GA?

To the best of my knowledge you are the FIRST visitor from that neck of the woods.

I bet it's cold up there .... Brrrrr ... It makes me shiver just to think of it.
