Susan Masten, chairman of the Center's board, former chairman of the Yurok Tribe, and past President of NCAI, explained how the right to self-determination articulated in the Declaration is critical to her community's ability to protect its citizens from violence, particularly women and children. Her reservation is located in California, a Public Law 280 state.

"The attention to the details has made this a nicer facility than most places you see on the North Coast," said Susan Masten, vice-chair of the Yurok Tribal Council.

Since the 1964 Christmas Flood wiped out the once-bustling town of Klamath, there has been very little economic growth in the town, said vice-chair Masten, but the tribe's projects, including the hotel, are intended to "revitalize the town of Klamath." Masten said the Redwood Hotel Casino is just one component of the tribe's larger vision for the town of Klamath, creating a "win-win" for the whole community. A visitor center that will "showcase our culture and traditions and provide information about things to do in the area" and an amphitheater are currently under construction, Masten said. The tribe will also break ground on a new justice center and will redevelop existing retail space as part of a larger retail development project. Along with the Redwood Hotel, another completed component of the tribe's plan is the Yurok Culture and Knowledge Park, which gives visitors the opportunity to look at examples of the architecture of traditional Yurok homes and sweathouses and the different plants and wildlife that are found in the area. "We wanted to create this vision for the townsite that lets you know that you're in Yurok country," Masten said. A hotel was a necessary component for the vision the tribe has for visitors in order to "make sure that visitors feel welcome in this place that we live," Masten said. While some have been critical of another casino opening in Del?Norte County, Masten said that the casino is a small component of the tribe's plans for Klamath and that it will be the "smallest casino in the state of California. "We have all of these other projects that we want to do that are more important or just as important as the casino," Masten said.

Masten noted that the projects coming to fruition this year were chosen in a referendum by Yurok tribal members. "The Yurok people chose to do this," Masten said.
