Tickets for the shows range from $60 to $125, and guests will also have the chance to win cash prizes, free plays at the casino, free stays at the resort, and a $100,000 stake for a new car.
The official opening on January 3 was marked by a vibrant ribbon-cutting ceremony, attended by tribal members and veterans, and highlighted by traditional drummers, a tribal prayer, and a song and dance of the Canoe family.
