If you build it, they will come. That's the gamble members of the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe made when they broke ground on the First Light Resort Casino last year. But now, the 170-acre plot is nearly untouched and fenced off, thanks to a legal challenge to the federal government's 2015 decision to declare the land reservation territory.
Jim Braude is joined by Cedric Cromwell, chairman of the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe of Massachusetts to discuss the tribe’s efforts to further their casino construction and the president’s relationship with Native Americans.
