Snoqualmie Tribe celebrated the opening of their brand new casino Thursday.

It was the largest traffic jam in local history during the first 24 hours of the casino’s operations.
The new casino is a new beginning for the tribe, as they have finally received recognition, a means for a new life, and a way to participate within their local community.
