GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — With a heavy winter storm hitting the Great Lakes region, Gun Lake Casino, located halfway between Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo, Michigan, announced it closed on Friday evening at 7 p.m., December 23, and will reopen on Christmas Day, December 25, at 10 a.m.
Gun Lake Casino officials said in a statement:

12 years of Native News
This month, we celebrate our 12th year of delivering Native News to readers throughout Indian Country and beyond. For the past dozen years, we’ve covered the most important news stories that are usually overlooked by other media. From the protests at Standing Rock and the rise of the American Indian Movement (AIM), to the ongoing epidemic of Murdered and Missing Indigenous People (MMIP) and the past-due reckoning related to assimilation, cultural genocide and Indian Boarding Schools.
Our news is free for everyone to read, but it is not free to produce. That’s why we’re asking you to make a donation this month to help support our efforts. Any contribution — big or small — helps. If you’re in a position to do so, we ask you to consider making a recurring donation of $12 per month to help us remain a force for change in Indian Country and to tell the stories that are so often ignored, erased or overlooked.
