San Manuel Band of Mission Indians CANCELS Pow Wow

 San Manuel Names New Chief Executive Officer - InlandEmpire.us
The
 San Manuel Band of Mission Indians, who, along with other Indian Tribes in California, have no problem opening their casinos during the coronavirus, defying Governor Newsom’s request for a temporary closure.

On their website and in their advertising, they boast that everything is safe and outline the steps they have taken to keep patrons of their casinos from contracting the coronavirus.

But apparently those good hygiene practices used to lure gamblers into their casinos does not work at San Manuel events tribal members attend.

Two days ago, the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians announced that they were canceling their annual pow wow stating, “this [cancellation] is the best and most responsible decision as we want to protect the health and safety of our Tribe and our guests.”

Several other tribes that have opened casinos have followed San Manuel and cancelled their pow wows while at the same time keeping their casinos open and likely spreading the virus.

Much like Newsom’s order, San Manuel was acknowledging that stopping the relentless spread of the coronavirus is urgent, yet they keep their casino open.

In a statement, the San Manuel Pow Wow Committee  wrote, “It is with a heavy heart that the Pow Wow Committee has made the decision to cancel the 2020 San Manuel Pow Wow. We feel this is the best and most responsible decision as we want to protect the health and safety of our Tribe and our guests who travel from throughout North America for the annual event. We look forward to hosting Native dancers, drum groups, vendors, spectators and honored guests to celebrate the very best of Indian Country in 2021. We will announce the dates for the 2021 San Manuel Pow Wow soon.”

Tasha Cerda, Mayor City of Gardena and Chair of California Cities Gaming Authority, a joint powers authority,  told HMG, “The Governor issued a statewide order to shut down indoor entertainment venues claiming it was critical to flatten the curve.  COVID-19 cases are spreading fast, straining, and overwhelming the healthcare systems in Orange, Riverside, and San Bernardino counties and across the state, hospitalizations have more than doubled and deaths have nearly tripled.  Despite the Governor’s order and the need to protect Californians, the gaming tribes have refused to abide by the Governor’s order, refusing to close their gaming casinos.”

“Yet to protect the health and safety of their community elders and other tribe members from the threat of the COVID-19 virus they are canceling their pow wows? This while demonstrating a complete lack of similar concern for all other Californians entering their venues?  In Southern California, an individual entering a tribal casino will intersect with individuals from at least six other counties spreading the COVID-19 virus throughout the state.”
