As Tribes advance the objective of self-reliance and economic diversification that IGRA intended, in recent years that encompassed more off reservation and non-casino economic development opportunities.

On the other hand, as we have witnessed court rulings erode Tribes' sovereign immunity over time, we need to consider the legal differences in how a potential enterprise will be treated under applicable law, from the on reservation legal framework.
