Darian-Smith (law and society, U. of California at Santa Barbara) presents an anthropological case study of the casino run by the Chumash Indians on their reservation in California. She focuses on issues of power, politics, and identity among all populations impacted by the casino operation, including the Chumash tribe, Latinos and whites who work at and visit the casino, and wealth elites that live in the surrounding valley. In particular, she concerns herself with the impact of "rich Indians" on perceptions of Indians among the wider society and their struggle for sovereign independence.
