They, too, claim Kings Mountain as their aboriginal turf. Then, in , the Indian Removal Act was signed into law, forcing five Southeastern tribes to give up their ancestral lands and move to federal territory west of the Mississippi. Catawba Cultural Center A small museum showcases the artifacts and history of the Catawba tribe; the adjoining shop sells Catawba-made pottery, paintings, and jewelry.{/INSERTKEYS}{/PARAGRAPH} If the Catawba prevail, the ruling is sure to be contested. When Europeans began encountering the Cherokee in the sixteenth century, they estimated there were more than fifty Cherokee villages with a combined population of , Those numbers nosedived when European diseases, especially smallpox, ravaged the tribe. The museum nets 82, visitors a year—less than two percent of the number who go to the casinos. The tribe knew the lay of the land and served as scouts for the Patriots, helping them launch a surprise attack on a much-larger British militia. In fact, they ceded it to North Carolina near the turn of the nineteenth century. But the site is well within their designated service area. Streets named Tomahawk and Singing Bird are lined with prefabricated houses and double-wide trailers. Regardless of the decision, it is sure to become part of a story that both the Cherokee and the Catawba tell for generations to come. Their allegiance would prove costly in lives and land. Yet even if gamers pay no attention to the history and culture of the tribe that owns the casino, even if they eschew the living-history village and museum and play, much of the money they spend flows back to the Cherokee. The casino is home to a mammoth spa and a 3,seat concert venue, ten restaurants and a sparkling pool lined with cabanas. But critics say that giving the Catawba a pass on these regulations—an unprecedented move in Indian gaming—is tantamount to letting the Catawba cut to the front of the line. The nearest gaming resorts that can compare are four states west in Biloxi, Mississippi. On the fourth day, their leaders met in secret on the land to which they both laid claim. Of course, Sneed has plenty of reasons to oppose the casino that have nothing to do with policy. Passed down through generations, the tale describes a violent clash between the two tribes deep in the southern Piedmont. Cherokee Chief Sneed agrees. It was an adversary against which the powerful tribe was utterly defenseless. But without this exemption, the process of acquiring land in Kings Mountain for a casino could take up to a decade and cost the Catawba millions of dollars they do not have. Together, the casinos see five million visitors a year. Scattered across the Carolinas and Virginia, the Siouan-speaking people were seasoned hunters who knew their land intimately and guarded it mercilessly. Some of his businesses have wound up in court; at least one was raided by government officials. It would also help the Catawba tribe build their own school, provide healthcare for their people, and get off government assistance. By the time of the American Revolution, only 20, Cherokee survived. They did all they could to capitalize on it. When Senators Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Thom Tillis and Richard Burr of North Carolina submitted a bill for a Catawba-run Kings Mountain casino in March , it exempted the tribe from some of the most stringent requirements—including paying for myriad impact studies and receiving the approval of the North Carolina governor. North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper has also come out against it. If they do not? The economic engine of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians began to hum. That kind of tourism was gaming. In , it was placed in federal trust. Old wounds broke open, made even more painful by the trauma the Cherokee had suffered during the recent expulsion. The house always wins. Then, in the s, smallpox broke out. But there are voices raised in opposition to the Kings Mountain casino, and the loudest among them is that of the Cherokee. And this time, common ground seems impossible to find. Open since , it offers games like blackjack, roulette, and poker at tables, day and night. But business was always seasonal. The Cherokee found themselves in the center of a tourism boom. Outsiders often refer to this territory as a reservation, but it was not given to the Cherokee by the government—tribal members assembled it through a series of purchases during the early nineteenth century. For three days and three nights, they fought without ceasing, until both sides feared they might perish. Some of the Cherokee who marched to Oklahoma eventually made their way back, joining the approximately 1, tribe members who had either been allowed to stay or who had hidden in the mountains. They have the documents to prove it. Twenty years later, a second outbreak killed still more. {PARAGRAPH}{INSERTKEYS}An ancient story tells of a battle over hunting grounds that took place between the Cherokee and the Catawba centuries ago. One-story motels opened along the main drag. It was better, they determined, to live with only part of the land than to die in the struggle for it all. Unto These Hills, an outdoor drama about the history of the Cherokee people, took to the stage in an outdoor amphitheater. Thousands died in the war, and the tribe wound up forfeiting most of their South Carolina acreage. It all amounts to big business for the Cherokee. In western North Carolina, in a fog-ribboned valley among the peaks of the Smoky Mountains, 16, Cherokee reside within the Qualla Boundary. It would be almost four decades before the North Carolina government formally recognized them as the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians. Within two years, most of the Catawba left, returning to settle on acres of South Carolina land deeded to them by a sympathetic businessman. The degree to which it will impact the resort, no one knows. Moore has recused himself from commenting on the project. By the s, even more cruised into town to hop on the newly constructed Blue Ridge Parkway, which winds nearly miles from the Boundary to Virginia. Within months, half the population perished. Invitation-only gaming rooms see tens of thousands of dollars won and lost in a single hand. When the Spanish arrived in the region in , they estimated the Catawba population to be 25, With the entrance of Europeans, the Catawba saw an opportunity to leverage their hunting skills and take part in the fur trade. A small cultural center showcases turkey-feather headdresses and sells Catawba pottery. The Indian Gaming Regulatory Act has strict rules in place for tribes attempting to take new land into trust for the purposes of gambling. Almost 3, people now call themselves Catawba, the majority of them living on the reservation or within its service area—the area in which members may enroll in social-service programs and receive financial assistance. According to the Charlotte Observer, the wealthy Greenville, South Carolina, businessman has had a long career in gaming, beginning with a video-poker company, then a sweepstakes company, then a riverboat gambling operation. Still, after the fighting ended, the Cherokee managed to establish a capitol New Echota, in northwest Georgia , develop a written language thanks to a now-famous tribal member named Sequoyah , and print the first American Indian newspaper The Cherokee Phoenix, which included articles in both Cherokee and English. North Carolina, by contrast, has a clear precedent of allowing such an operation. Eleven-hundred guest rooms are spread among its three towers, making it the largest hotel in the Carolinas. One in which boundaries will either be redrawn or harden into stone. Yes, the area in question is in North Carolina, and they are officially a South Carolina tribe. And that is where the tribe resides today, near the banks of the Catawba River, next to Rock Hill, South Carolina, and thirty miles south of Charlotte. It is notable that not nearly as many people visit these cultural attractions as they do the casino. Kings Mountain, North Carolina, is close enough to Charlotte to be considered one of its suburbs, but far enough away to have missed out on most of its success. It is a point that matters greatly, as the Catawba cannot open a gambling resort on their South Carolina reservation. June through September, hotels were full and restaurants had waits; October through May, most of those hotels and restaurants closed. With such sporadic income, Cherokee poverty rates hovered in the double digits, occasionally jumping to fifty percent. Though they had suffered greatly during the Revolution, the Cherokee experienced a renaissance. Twice they have sued the state for the right to do so, and twice they have lost. Kings Mountain Mayor Scott Neisler says residents of the town are overwhelmingly in favor of the proposed gaming resort. Undeterred, English settlers continued to encroach. Under pressure from the Cherokee, thirty-eight out of fifty North Carolina senators have signed a letter to the United States Indian Affairs Committee opposing a Catawba casino. One day soon—no one knows exactly when—the United States Department of the Interior will render a decision on whether the Catawba may move forward with their plans for a gaming resort in Kings Mountain. Rather than fight the Catawba, many a smaller tribe assimilated into it. Of course, the Boundary as residents call it has been Cherokee-claimed land for hundreds of years, along with vast territory throughout the southeastern United States. Situated in the midst of them is an old Colonial Revival post office, now a history museum, with an exterior brick wall featuring a giant mural of the Battle of Kings Mountain. Instead of continuing to wage war on one another, they decided to create a boundary and divide the grounds. Of the 16, Cherokee sent to Oklahoma on the Trail of Tears, only 11, survived. In , the impoverished few who remained sold their South Carolina acreage and moved to Cherokee lands in western North Carolina. For much of the twentieth century it was a textile town, but the majority of its manufacturers have downsized or left. The Catawba relinquished the majority of their land in exchange for sworn protection of , acres along the modern-day border of South Carolina and North Carolina. Spanning some 56, acres, the land has waterfalls and forests, hiking trails and trout-filled streams. As with most stories involving these two tribes, there will be casualties along the way. Suddenly, hundreds of cars full of families began driving through the Boundary on their way to the park. Its poverty rate is nineteen percent. An annual cultural event, the Catawba Pow-Wow, has gone dormant due to funding issues. A story of a great battle over history, over land rights, over survival.
