INCOME AND ENTERTAINMENT

Proceeds for gaming operations help to fund a variety of Muscogee (Creek) Nation service programs such as housing, education, elderly assistance and healthcare. The River Spirit Casino also helps to position greater Tulsa as an inviting tourist area, and the facility is an important factor in the continuing development of the Arkansas River.
