ABOUT THE MOHEGAN TRIBE:
The Mohegan Tribe was founded on the banks of southeastern Connecticut’s Thames River by Chief Uncas in the early 17th century. After its federal recognition in 1994, the Tribe established its own sovereign government within the state of Connecticut, and opened the world class casino resort Mohegan Sun on its reservation land in 1996. It has created The Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority (MTGA) to oversee its gaming properties which now include Mohegan Sun Pocono in Wilkes-Barre, PA and Atlantic City Resorts in Atlantic City, NJ. The nine-member Tribal Council serves as the leadership for the sovereign nation, and also serves as the Board of Directors for MTGA. The Mohegan Holding Company, LLC was created by the Tribe for business diversification in non-gaming areas, and now includes interests in franchise restaurants, sustainable energy resources and manufacturing, and office digital solutions.
