It was a combination of government policies and treaties that made it possible for Native Americans to have their own land, government and constitution on what is know as reservations, casinos offer federally recognized tribes to open Indian gaming so that they have a means to support themselves and to provide for their community with health care, housing law enforcement etc... it replaces normal government taxes that most states and the United states use to support its community. Without taxes America would not have schools, police, fire, medicare etc...

Casinos run by Native Americans are on reservations. Reservations are sovereign nations within the United States. The Indians normally have to get permissions, and that means in many cases having new laws inacted, to have casinos. Casinos give economic opportunities to so many tribes.

When did native Americans get permition to gamble?

Native Americans have Indian Reservations. These reservations are considered their own place and they don't have to follow all the rules of the united states, because technically Indian Reservations are their own places. They build casinos because casinos are illegal to have (unless in las vegas) because gamballing is technically illegal, but since its on Indian Reservations, it is allowed. They actually make a ton of money from creating these casinos on their Indian Reservations. Hope I helped answer your question.

As sovereign political entities outside state jurisdiction can Native American tribes legally operate brothels just as they do casinos?

They probably can but most Native Americans are strong in their beliefs and would not want such attention, they also would not legalize drugs to make money to support their community, Native Americans make a great effort to give back to the surrounding communities that they have casinos located in. They shy away from such things, even casinos are highly controversial among their tribal members. Many Indians that I know are VERY conservative in their beliefs.David, Member of The Pokagon Band of Potawatomi
