AMERICAN INDIAN TRIBAL LEADERS AN OPEN LETTER TO THE MEMBERS OF THE CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES March 19, 1993 We, the undersigned representatives of federally recognized Indian tribes of the United States, attending a meeting in Washington, D.C. on March 19, 1993, wish to clarify some of the current issues surrounding Indian gaming. We are concerned that there is a campaign underway by a few state officials and private gaming interests to amend the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA) of 1988 in a manner that would be very detrimental to our tribal governments. This campaign is either deliberately or unintentionally spreading a significant amount of misinformation about IGRA and proposes to amend IGRA via a two year moratorium on any new federally approved gaming compacts and other efforts to restrict Indian gaming. We urge the Members of the House and Senate to resist and oppose any such amendments.

San Diego County has more Indian reservations than any other county in the United States. However, the reservations are very small, with total land holdings of just over 124,000 acres, or about 193 square miles of the 4,205 square miles in San Diego County (reservation acerage source from the San Diego County Tax Assessor).
