The Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians opened its new Four Winds Casino in South Bend on Tuesday after a ribbon cutting ceremony during which more than 300 guests celebrated the opening of the state's first tribal casino.
Four Winds South Bend is on 166 acres of tribal trust land at 3000 Prairie Ave.
Pokagon Band Chairman John Warren said the tribe received support from South Bend, St. Joseph County and the state during the planning and construction process.
“We could not have done this without the support of many people and agencies," he said. "We also extend our gratitude to the Pokagon Elders Council and Pokagon Gaming Authority, along with the entire Tribal Government. Without their knowledge and guidance, we would not be here today.”
The casino is the fourth Four Winds, joining existing casinos in the Michigan communities of New Buffalo, Hartford and Dowagiac.
