Lol same. Our casino pays big chunk of taxes to the neighboring city too as part of our agreement.

It’s because a lot of non-Natives see Natives’ rights to sovereign land as a “special privilege” and believe it’s unfair to everyone else. Once the land is in trust, regular taxes* and state and city regulations don’t apply because that’s how land sovereignty works. (I say *regular taxes because often tribes do agree to pay various taxes/tax alternatives as part of their agreement)
