Prairie Band Potawatomi Reservation


category : Indian Reservations
Prairie Band Potawatomi Reservation Rich in cultural tradition, the Prairie Band Potawatomi Tribe currently reside on 11 square miles, 77,000 acres, west of U.S. 75. Tribal membership is over 4,300 with approximately 500 living on the reservation and the remainder living across the United States.

Within the last decade, the tribe has experienced a revitalization. They have improved social, educational, environmental, infrastructure, and cultural leadership programs, due in no small part to the introduction of gaming activities. Through an agreement with Harrah's Entertainment, Inc. the tribe opened a 63,000 square foot gaming facility on reservation land in January, 1998. The new facility created over 1,200 jobs, generating approximately $28 million in tribal wages and revenue.

Harrah's Prairie Band Casino is located west of the junction of U.S. Highway 75 and Road 150 in the southeast quadrant of the reservation. The casino entertainment complex provides Fresh Market Square Buffet, gift shop, Prairie Pub Lounge, and the 100-room hotel in addition to gaming opportunities. Many meeting are coordinated within the facility for regional groups.
