Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community members and their families helped Talking Stick Resort celebrate its fifth anniversary with a celebration in the grand ballroom on April 18.
Casino Arizona’s Ramon Martinez was the evening’s MC. “Many of you remember not having air conditioning or running water. Many of [our] members had to haul water. [But] someone out there had a dream, a vision, a relative and or a leader who pushed for this dream (building a casino), and here we are today proudly celebrating five years of the Talking Stick Resort,” said Martinez.
