California OK's gambling compact with Kanuk Tribe The California legislature has ratified a gambling compact with the Kanuk Tribe, approving a casino in Yreka.

This follows Gov. Jerry Brown’s approval of a casino that will have 1,500 slot machines.

As part of the agreement, the tribe will pay the state 10 percent of the casino’s net win. The money would be shared with other tribes that do not have significant gambling income.

The Kanuk tribe, located in the northern part of the state, is the state’s second largest Native American community.
