SLOAN, Iowa (KCAU) – The WinnaVegas Casino Resort turned 29 on Thursday.
Winnebago tribal members along with Siouxlanders gathered at the casino in celebration.
A Winnebgao chairwoman said as a child, tribal members didn’t have enough resources to fund programs and health care, and the anniversary of WinnaVegas is a celebration of the tribe’s success and resiliency.
“As a current tribal chair woman, I’m standing on the shoulders of our former tribal leaders that had the fortitude to build this casino. That we would carry their vision forward,” Victoria Kitcheyan said.
Kitcheyan said they’re looking forward to the next 29 years.
