THE MASHANTUCKET PEQUOT TRIBAL NATION
The Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation is a federally recognized Indian tribe located at one of the oldest reservations in existence, Mashantucket, in Southeastern Connecticut. As pioneers of the Indian casino gaming industry, the history of the Mashantucket Pequots reveals one of America’s greatest come-back stories, featured at the world renowned Mashantucket Pequot Museum and Research Center.
Today, the tribe owns and operates one of the largest gaming resort destinations in North America, Foxwoods Resort Casino, along with a variety of complementary business enterprises, including Eastern Connecticut’s premiere luxury golf experience, Lake of Isles and the decadent Spa at Norwich Inn. The tribe’s health and wellness company, Pequot Health Care (PHC), remains an industry leader in tribal and commercial health benefit plan management and pharmaceutical services throughout the United States.
As one of the highest revenue contributions and largest employers in Connecticut, the Mashantucket Pequots have hosted more than 330 million visitors since 1992 and contributed over $4 billion in slot revenue payments to the State through a first-of-its-kind agreement, established in 1993. Likewise, the tribe has contributed hundreds of millions in donations and sponsorships to support worthy charities, community events and programs, and other tribes in need, locally and throughout the United States.
Revenues from Foxwoods Resort Casino fund the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Government in accordance with the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act. The Tribal Government oversees and regulates gaming and the uses of tribal lands and resources, and provides programs and services to support tribal families, employees, visitors, tenants, vendors, facilities, and more.
