Harrah's Cherokee Casino

A referendum as to whether to allow alcohol to be served at Harrah’s Cherokee Casino in North Carolina was vetoed last month by Eastern Band of the Cherokee Indians Principal Chief Mitchell Hicks. The tribal council voted August 7 to hold the election. Harrah’s has asked to be allowed to sell alcohol to make the casino more competitive and increase revenues. In vetoing the election, Hicks pointed to the tribe’s longstanding tradition against alcohol on the reservation. The tribal council is now considering whether to override Hicks’ veto.
