Trenton Indian Service Area considers bingo hall

Trenton, North Dakota (AP) July 2010

The Trenton Indian Service Area is considering a bingo hall to generate revenue for programs.

The service area was established in the 1970s to serve members of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa who moved to northwest North Dakota and northeast Montana years ago. Tribal operations consultant Tony Moran says it is short on money for everything from housing to patient care.

Moran says the service area in the past held successful bingo games at the Trenton community building, but not since 1990. He says plans for a new bingo hall are preliminary, though the service area has obtained a tribal gaming license and identified three possible sites.

Moran says the service area serves 2,600 enrolled members or direct descendants of the Turtle Mountain tribe, as well as 650 members of other tribes.
