Abstract

This article focuses on the unequal impact of PRWORA and TANF programs on American Indian women and their children in Arizona, despite exemptions from time limits on high-unemployment reservations. It discusses whether gaming, a controversial form of economic development in tribal communities, is a potential benefit to American Indian women and presents implications for social work practice and advocacy.
