Live Entertainment Returns

In the summer, Seneca Gaming Corporation announced that its gaming properties in New York State are now able to host live entertainment once again. Live shows were suspended due to the emergence of the unprecedented situation, but now the casinos offer a fun-packed program for everyone. For example, Cedric The Entertainer will perform at Seneca Niagara on November 20, 2021.

Paying Tribute

During the summer, the tribal gaming corporation has also paid its respects to the victims of Canadian residential schools, as the remains of 215 indigenous children have been found buried at Kamloops Indian Residential School. Teddy bears, children’s shoes, and a sign stating Every Child Matters were displayed before the tribe’s court building, which is the former Thomas Indian School.
