The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Gambling with Their Lives: American Indians and the Casinos.

Carter, Irl.

Indian casino gambling had become big business by 1992, bringing new money to one of the poorest minority groups in our country. This article examines casino operations in Minnesota, who runs the casinos, where the money goes, and the jobs that have been created as well as the ongoing complaint over regulation of the casinos and the concern of some within the Indian community that the emphasis on gambling is destroying tribal traditions and values.
