Naskila Gaming is a bustling operation in a faux-log cabin on reservation land just east of Livingston. Renewed efforts to open Naskila Gaming began in , when the National Indian Gaming Commission, an agency of the federal government, gave the tribe approval to do so. Neither parent had a job. As the state sees it, neither class of casino is permissible on the Alabama-Coushatta reservation. The legislation that federally recognized them again in , called the Restoration Act, included an initial provision that made gaming illegal. By then, the Kickapoo's center had been open for two decades. He hasn't missed a day of work. Born in , the tribe's spokesperson, Emma Abbey, has watched debate over the casino drag on throughout her life. Its first casino was considered a "class III" operation - one that offered all forms of gambling. Read More.{/INSERTKEYS}{/PARAGRAPH} The Tiguas did, too. Clues betray its impermanence: A new section remains covered in temporary, dark fabric, in contrast with the wooden walls on the original side; the kitchen and some offices remain in temporary trailers. Two tribes that eventually became one, they fought alongside Sam Houston's Texian Army in the Texas Revolution, for which they were promised land between the Neches and Sabine rivers in return. Now they are once again entangled in a legal battle with the state, which has obtained a court order declaring that their current venture is subject to state law - and therefore illegal. She had 10 siblings. Today, the Alabama-Coushatta reservation, an hour-and-half drive northeast of Houston, stretches across 10, acres. Rhinesmith returned to the reservation in , when her father was sick. How much the gaming center is now making is anyone's guess. She remembers going to Austin to protest. Martha Newton, 70, was winning. It was common to see people walking because they did not own cars. Gregory Battise, 29, grew up on the reservation and used to commute to Conroe for work. There are 1, tribal members, of whom live on the reservation. He hopes to start a business one day. Abbey, who lives in a town nearby, remembers the sense of devastation when, in June , the court ordered it closed. The Alabama-Coushatta tribe for decades - or, arguably, centuries - has fought for the right to exist. It holds the same to be true for the Tigua tribe in El Paso, which has been fighting a similar battle over gambling with the state since the tribe opened its Speaking Rock Entertainment Center in The Alabama-Coushatta and the Tigua obtained recognition under the same federal legislation but, the state argues, agreed they would not permit gambling on their land. Trusteeship of the tribe was transferred to the state in , a time when many such federal relationships were being terminated. An average 2, people come every day. Legal wrangling began six weeks after Naskila Gaming opened, and in early February this year, Federal Magistrate Judge Keith Giblin ruled in favor of the state, reiterating that the tribe was bound by the Restoration Act. Naskila Gaming is always open. That relationship frazzled in when then-state Attorney General Jim Mattox issued an opinion that asserted the tribe was simply an association of people, not a sovereign nation. A contentious ruling by the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in a case involving the Tigua tribe had found the Restoration Act still governed them both - forbidding gambling. Brian Babin to allow the operation - as well as that of the Tiguas - to continue. He's been able to buy a cellphone. Signs for Naskila Gaming point the way. Back to Gallery Alabama-Coushatta tribe fights for right to a gaming In one, you'll live almost a decade longer. While battles rolled out in courtrooms, Alabama-Coushatta tribal members were trying to survive. But he expressed sympathy for the tribe's position. The Alabama-Coushatta tribe argues that federal legislation allows a certain level of gambling, known as "class II," on reservations in states that permit bingo, such as Texas. The sign directs people to a website. He's saving for a laptop. The tribe acknowledged it would require an agreement with the state to operate it, which never materialized. The tribe in voted against the idea. It passed in , and two years later, the tribe opened its first casino. Money was tight in families such as that of Janie Rhinesmith, who at age 14 went to live with her aunt in Houston and work in restaurants. There are no windows, as in any casino, but there is also no bar. They worked to build economies from timber, tourism and oil. It recently celebrated the 1 millionth visitor. It was nothing compared to what his father had done, rising at 3 a. The Alabama-Coushatta tried then to return to the trusteeship of the federal government - and therein lies the roots of its current problem with the state. Naskila Gaming - named for the dogwood tree believed in Alabama-Coushatta tradition to treat illness - would be the answer to so many problems: A young man could stop commuting 75 miles every day for work; a child being made fun of at school for crooked teeth could get braces; a retiree would have somewhere fun to pass the time; and the tribe would make money. Battise, with his hair tied back in a ponytail, now fixes the bingo machines. The tribe promised to appeal the same day. None lasted. The reservation today is on land a fraction of the size they were promised. She became the tribe's education director. All revenue goes back to the tribe. The stakes are high. Inside, one hears the near-constant, winning ring of electronic bingo machines, which look like slot machines but function differently. There, they can notify Texas representatives of their support for legislation introduced by U. {PARAGRAPH}{INSERTKEYS}The casino would create jobs, attract visitors from all over and generate millions in much-needed revenue. The tribe, under duress as some see it, passed a resolution in support of that. If a federal judge decides to allow Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton to shutter the facility, it would mirror the sense of devastation felt by tribal members all those years ago. On a recent Wednesday, the cushioned chairs in front of the machines were filled. Those were the same expectations 15 years earlier when the tribe, looking to cash in on the proliferation of casinos on Indian lands nationwide, opened its first casino, only to have its hopes dashed when the state of Texas promptly shut it down. Kids shared bedrooms or slept in living rooms. In , the tribe was officially recognized by the United States. Its parking lot fills regularly; the tribe built a second lot after it opened.
