in the Council Hall to hear the speech. The politician had worked up to his
finale, and the crowd was getting more and more excited. "I promise better
education opportunities for Native Americans!"

gambling reforms to allow a Casino on the Reservation!"
"Hoya! Hoya!" cried the crowd, stomping their feet.
