The Navajo Nation Gaming Enterprise (Navajo Gaming), led by CEO Derrick Watchman, celebrates the five-year anniversary of its second Navajo casino, Flowing Water Navajo Casino in the Tsé Daak’áán Chapter, near Shiprock, N.M.

Throughout the past five years, many Navajos have been employed through Flowing Water, as well as receiving leadership, hospitality, gaming and management job training as they advance. Flowing Water Navajo Casino has also become a valuable training ground for Navajo Gaming’s additional properties that have successfully opened the past seven years.

“We are grateful for support from the Shiprock community, Tsé Daak’áán Chapter, The Navajo Nation president Begaye and his administration, Speaker LoRenzo Bates, Navajo Nation Council and its committees, Navajo Gaming Board and dedicated Flowing Water employees that have worked extremely hard the past five years,” Watchman said.
