The Incredible Shrinking

Chukchansi Tribe

One of California's major gaming tribes, the Picayune Rancheria of the Chukchansi Indians, has kicked out more than 500 members in the last year. Several former Chukchansi said they expect the tribe to drop below 100 people by next year. Still-enrolled members have been pushing for the tribe to begin parceling out much of the approximately $4 million-plus a month the tribe gets from the Chukchansi Gold Resort & Casino.
