Operators of the Harrah’s Rincon casino in Southern California become 32nd federally recognized tribal government to join California Nations Indian Gaming Association

The California Nations Indian Gaming Association announced that the Rincon Band of Luiseño Indians has rejoined the organization.

“Rincon is very pleased to rejoin CNIGA,” said Rincon Chairman Bo Mazzetti. “CNIGA’s proven track record of protecting tribal sovereignty and economic development supports our tribal goals and vision. Rincon looks forward to partnering with CNIGA to ensure tribal gaming rights and protections for future generations.”

The northern San Diego County-based tribe operates the Harrah’s Rincon casino near the town of Valley Center which features a 21-story hotel tower as well as a spa and several restaurants.

“CNIGA welcomes the Rincon Tribal Government back to the association and we look forward to their participation and contributions,” said CNIGA Chairman Anthony Miranda, “Together, CNIGA and our member tribes will continue our work to preserve and protect tribal sovereign rights now and for generations to come.”
