It was common to see people walking because they did not own cars. Naskila Gaming is always open. Born in , the tribe's spokesperson, Emma Abbey, has watched debate over the casino drag on throughout her life. They worked to build economies from timber, tourism and oil. 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. How much the gaming center is now making is anyone's guess. The tribe acknowledged it would require an agreement with the state to operate it, which never materialized. While battles rolled out in courtrooms, Alabama-Coushatta tribal members were trying to survive. 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. On a recent Wednesday, the cushioned chairs in front of the machines were filled. The stakes are high. None lasted. Abbey, who lives in a town nearby, remembers the sense of devastation when, in June , the court ordered it closed. 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. Its first casino was considered a "class III" operation - one that offered all forms of gambling. The reservation today is on land a fraction of the size they were promised. Today, the Alabama-Coushatta reservation, an hour-and-half drive northeast of Houston, stretches across 10, acres. She became the tribe's education director. As the state sees it, neither class of casino is permissible on the Alabama-Coushatta reservation. 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. She had 10 siblings. Gregory Battise, 29, grew up on the reservation and used to commute to Conroe for work. 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. The sign directs people to a website. He's been able to buy a cellphone. He hasn't missed a day of work. All revenue goes back to the tribe. It passed in , and two years later, the tribe opened its first casino. Battise, with his hair tied back in a ponytail, now fixes the bingo machines. 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. An average 2, people come every day. The tribe in voted against the idea. 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. There, they can notify Texas representatives of their support for legislation introduced by U. The Tiguas did, too.

He's saving for a laptop. Kids shared bedrooms or slept in living rooms. She remembers going to Austin to protest. Trusteeship of the tribe was transferred to the state in , a time when many such federal relationships were being terminated. The legislation that federally recognized them again in , called the Restoration Act, included an initial provision that made gaming illegal.

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. There are 1, tribal members, of whom live on the reservation. 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. 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. {PARAGRAPH}{INSERTKEYS}The casino would create jobs, attract visitors from all over and generate millions in much-needed revenue.
