A July 2016 article by Matthew S. Robinson in “Indian Gaming” magazine identified a 35-percent increase in the construction of spas in Indian Casinos between 2010 and 2016.

Indeed, many Indian Tribes are developing their lands with projects that support their casinos, or projects that simply diversify their economy and drive economic development in general. In addition to spas, such projects include hotels, golf courses, conference centers, shopping centers and sports and entertainment complexes. Some of these non-casino projects occur on tribal land (land held for the benefit of the tribe at large), while others occur on allotted land (land held for the benefit of individual landowners).
