This 4,593-acre reservation is the oldest. Located 17 miles east of Livingston on U.S. Highway 190 in Polk County, the Alabama-Coushatta Indian Reservation comprises recreational campgrounds that accommodate more than 200,000 visitors annually. The reservation smoke shop, souvenir shop and a truck stop are also open to non-residents. Beyond these facilities, no tours of the reservation are offered and the practice of “self-guided touring” is considered disrespectful. The Alabama-Coushatta stage an annual powwow the first weekend in June: this is held on their reservation between Livingston and Woodville, and non-Natives are welcome.
The Tigua people live on a 26-acre reservation in El Paso County. The reservation is home to a 900-seat high-stakes bingo parlor, and visiting the gaming facility is the only way for non-Tigua to visit the reservation. The Tigua honor their patron saint, St. Anthony, by attending the annual St. Anthony Festival in El Paso. There they perform traditional dances, and members of the tribe interact with visitors.
The Kickapoo live on a reservation southeast of Eagle Pass where they have built a casino. Tourists are strongly discouraged from entering the reservation unescorted but are welcome at the casino. Although the casino has an Eagle Pass address it is technically on Kickapoo national land, and visiting for gaming is the only approved way for non-Natives to enter the reservation. Although there are no hotels associated with the casino, there are hotels in the immediate area.
Looks like two of the three exist mostly for gambling so a abortion T-Pee would not be much of a leap.
