Power in the Telling

Grand Ronde, Warm Springs, and Intertribal Relations in the Casino Era

By Brook Colley
Foreword by David G. Lewis, Series edited by Coll Thrush and Charlotte Cote
From 1998 through 2013, the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs sought to develop a casino in Cascade Locks, Oregon. This prompted objections from the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, who already operated a lucrative casino in the region. Brook Colley's in-depth case study unravels the history of this disagreement and challenges the way conventional media characterizes intertribal casino disputes in terms of corruption and greed. Instead, she locates these conflicts within historical, social, and political contexts of colonization.

Through extensive interviews, Colley brings to the forefront Indigenous perspectives on intertribal conflict related to tribal gaming. She reveals how casino economies affect the relationship between gaming tribes and federal and state governments, and the repercussions for the tribes themselves. Ultimately, Colley's engaging examination explores strategies for reconciliation and cooperation, emphasizing narratives of resilience and tribal sovereignty.

Endorsements

"Brook Colley challenges superficial means of thinking about and forming opinions around gaming—not just in Oregon but well beyond."—Daniel M. Cobb, editor of Say We Are Nations: Documents of Politics and Protest in Indigenous America since 1887

"Brook Colley's timely study is an incisive examination of the challenges and opportunities afforded Native nations by the casino economy. Her focus on the interactions between the Grand Ronde and Warm Springs peoples, both located within the boundaries of present-day Oregon, provides a useful perspective on the causes and consequences of inter-tribal conflicts over gaming."—David E. Wilkins, coauthor of Dismembered: Native Disenrollment and the Battle for Human Rights

"The politics of tribal gaming traffics in stereotypes. Brook Colley's convincing book finds not 'greed,' but the struggle for Native survival in the face of settler colonialism."—Tom Biolsi, author of Deadliest Enemies: Law and Race Relations on and off Rosebud Reservation

"Brook Colley brings a dynamic voice to researchers who have much to offer in terms of their rich cultural heritages and craft wisdom in decolonizing methodologies. The book draws on Colley's extensive experience teaching about decolonization and offers a concise reference for educators, activists, and artists committed to insurgent research and praxis."—Cornel Pewewardy, professor emeritus, Indigenous Nations Studies, Portland State University
