A new welfare state? Tribes call Puyallups' plan a gamble 
By Lynda V. Mapes 
Seattle Times staff reporter 
"increased monthly per-capita payments to $2,000 [$24,000 / yr] from
$300 for every man, woman and child in the tribe. For a family of
four, that adds up to $96,000 a year. Children's casino checks will be
held in trust until they turn 18, except for $300 per child paid
monthly to their parents for expenses.  The casino checks are on top
of a $20,000 lump-sum payment every tribal member receives at age 21
as his share of a landmark, $162 million land-claim settlement in
1990. The tribe is small,
with only about 2,700 members, but the gambling operation is one of
the most lucrative of any operated by the state's 14 gaming tribes.  "

Steve Sailer notes:
* the Foxwoods, a tiny tribe that owns a huge casino near NYC, are 
richer.
* the Barona Nation, 32 families who own 7 square miles of beautiful
countryside 30 miles northwest of San Diego, net worth after they pay
off their loans will be at least $10 million per family.
