Many of the potawatomi casinos in Wisconsin have been built using the classic style and many feature wood floors and authentic antler chandeliers. These features are very important to the people that live in the area and are used for many different reasons.
Potawatomi Indians used to gather on the edge of the reservation to smoke a tobacco pipe or smoke berries made from a weed called ‘chirch’ and use this to relax. If you have ever been there you will see an area called the ‘Windswept’ area, this was where they used to gather. They would sit in the open air and smoke potawatomi tobacco as they talked. The potawatomi would also use the windswept area as a place to rest from a long day of work.
The reason that the potawatomi use these areas as a gathering place is because they love to eat, this is why the casino was built in the area. Many of the potawatomi would gather there and watch television, listen to music or even watch a movie.
Another reason the potawatomi build the casino was to make their way back into the reservation. Many of the potawatomi moved away from the reservation because of a disease known as ‘potu’ which can be contracted by contact with an animal. The potawatomi could contract this disease and move out of the reservation and this is why they built a place to get back into the reservation and use the land.
A lot of the potawatomi did not want to go back into the reservation but many of them did. Many of them wanted to settle in the Milwaukee area and make a living. This is where the Potawatomi Casino came about.
You may be wondering why the potawatomi chose to build the casino as it does not seem all that natural. Well if you look at the history of the area, it is very easy to see why the potawatomi chose to do this.
This is the second largest tribe in the entire life of North America. You have the Hopi which is the biggest of the Native Americans and then you have the Wichitas and the Potawatomi. When you talk about this the only thing you have to do is read the history books to see how many people died and left their tribes. The Potawatomi were one of the last groups that left their tribe and ended up moving to a reservation.
The Potawatomi Casino is going to have over 100 slot machines, a poker room that has an additional table that will seat a hundred people and it will also have over ten slots. roulette tables. It is a lot more gambling then a lot of the casinos that are in the city.
The good thing is this, you do not have to worry about the casino being near a freeway so you do not have to worry about traffic. You can walk right up to the entrance and you can walk in. There are not too many problems here in Wisconsin with this casino, and you can get on the road fairly easily so you can get to the casino pretty quickly.
