January 31, 2020 – With the Super Bowl coming up this weekend, New Mexico in Focus turns its attention to sports betting at Native casinos. A 2018 U.S. Supreme Court decision opened the door for previously banned commercial sports betting, and a number of New Mexico tribes have opened sports books at their casinos. Correspondent Antonia Gonzales examines how and why Isleta Pueblo chose to open its sports book, what business is like, and what other tribes are weighing before they act.

Guests:
Edward Calabaza, former Isleta Tribal Council member
Staci Chafins, Isleta Casino Player Development Manager
