Umatilla Tribal Government is not involved with Fiji casino dealings

I am the Deputy Executive Director for the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation. Our tribal government is NOT involved in any efforts to open a casino in Fiji.

Some of our enrolled tribal members are apparently involved in business dealings with the Fiji government, but they are not taking any action on behalf of our tribal government.

 

Thank you.

 

Debra Croswell, Deputy Executive Director

On Fiji Islands -- The Spirit's Way-- Chapter 3.42

In the following year Cakobau, under white pressure, sent a poorly organized punitive force. It was easily routed. For a time the Navatusila exulted in their ferocity (it was they who ate the duck hunters), but after their final defeat in 1876 and reduction to Christianity, a deep feeling of guilt overcame them. They…

On Fiji Islands -- The Spirit's Way-- Chapter 3.41

Reverend Thomas Baker ran a successful mission on the lower Rewa River (between Suva and Bau) for many years, but yearned for bigger things. In 1864 the Wesleyan Church appointed him Missionary to the interior, but he did not penetrate the highlands until 1867. He could hardly have chosen a worse time: Cakobau…
