"The Navajo Nation Gaming Enterprise (“NNGE”) is a Navajo Nation-wholly owned business entity created by the Navajo Nation in September 2006. NNGE is authorized by the Navajo Nation to develop and operate Navajo casinos in accordance with federal and Navajo Nation laws, as well as the negotiated Navajo Nation-applicable state compacts (New Mexico and Arizona). NNGE’s long-term plan is to build approximately 5 to 6 casinos within the Navajo Nation. NNGE’s goals include to create jobs in the Navajo Nation relating to the casino industry (such as casino operations, restaurants, hotels, golf course, tourism, construction, etc.), support development of small businesses that provide goods and services to the Navajo casinos and related businesses, and to generate gaming revenues for the Navajo Nation government. NNGE’s Mission Statement is “Developing a Navajo Gaming Economy".”
"NNGE opened its first Navajo Casino on November 19, 2008 – Fire Rock Navajo Casino in Church Rock Chapter, Navajo Nation (near Gallup, New Mexico); its second Navajo Casino on October 13, 2010 - Flowing Water Navajo Casino in Tsé Daak’áán Chapter, near Shiprock, Navajo Nation (New Mexico)."
"NNGE plans to open the Northern Edge Navajo Casino in January 2012 within the Upper Fruitland Chapter, Navajo Nation, (near Farmington, New Mexico); and the Twin Arrows Navajo Casino Resort in August 2013 within the Leupp Chapter, Navajo Nation (near Flagstaff, Arizona).
