Indian Country today bears the imprint of history—the legacy of conflict endured, of treaties made and broken, and of government promises unfulfilled. Indians living on reservations earn incomes that are fractions of what other Americans enjoy, and they carry financial, social, and cultural costs that few other American communities do. History matters—still. This is a story of just such a resurgence—the recent economic history of the Snoqualmie Indian Tribe. It is a story of persistence, achievement, and generosity. Most of all, it is a story of economic growth with impacts that extend to the nearby Cities of Snoqualmie and North Bend and to the Snoqualmie Valley generally.
