National Indian Gaming Association
WHO WE ARE:
The National Indian Gaming Association (NIGA), established in 1985, is a non-profit organization of 184 Indian Nations with other non-voting associate members representing organizations, tribes and businesses engaged in tribal gaming enterprises from around the country. The common commitment and purpose of NIGA is to advance the lives of Indian peoples economically, socially and politically. NIGA operates as a clearinghouse and educational, legislative and public policy resource for tribes, policymakers and the public on Indian gaming issues and tribal community development.
The mission of NIGA is to protect and preserve the general welfare of tribes striving for self-sufficiency through gaming enterprises in Indian Country. To fulfill its mission, NIGA works with the Federal government and Congress to develop sound policies and practices and to provide technical assistance and advocacy on gaming-related issues. In addition, NIGA seeks to maintain and protect Indian sovereign governmental authority in Indian Country.
Entering its 30th year, NIGA's Annual Tradeshow and Convention is the premier event for the Indian gaming industry. A showplace for the newest products and service innovations, the latest industry trends, along with a comprehensive schedule of workshops and plenty of networking events.
As a service to our members, the NIGA Seminar Institute offers training for all casino departments, tribal leaders and regulators. We offer regulatory training, state developments in Internet Gaming, and specialized training topics throughout the year.
