The Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority is the gambling arm of the Mohegan Tribe. It partnered in 2004 with developer and Cowlitz Tribe member David Barnett to form Salishan-Mohegan, LLC.
The Mohegans are the majority partner in the company that would manage the Cowlitz casino for seven years in exchange for 24 percent of net revenues.
