THE BINGO QUEENS OF ONEIDA: HOW TWO MOMS STARTED TRIBAL GAMING IN WISCONSIN (N)

Before Indian casinos, a few tribes got their start in gambling by opening bingo parlors. A group of women on the Oneida Indian Reservation just outside of Green Bay, WI introduced bingo in 1976 simply to pay the reservation’s civic center electricity bill. Bingo not only paid the light bill but was soon financing vital health and housing services for tribal elderly and poor—and inspiring other tribal gaming ventures across the country. Author Mike Hoeft tells the story through the eyes of Sandra Ninham and Alma Webster, who got the idea for a
tribal-run bingo game. It became the tribe’s first moneymaker at a time when half the reservation was living in poverty. Hoeft, a former newspaper reporter at the Green Bay
Press-Gazette, traces the historic struggles of the Oneida from the Revolutionary War to the present day. He is the son-in-law of Sandra Ninham.

Philip II of Macedon (father of Alexander the Great) created an entirely new style of warfare unique to the Greek World and nearly invincible against any opponent. In less than 20
years he was able to turn an extremely weak Macedonia into the lone superpower of the Greek World. The main force behind Philip’s new army was the sarissa-phalanx- a densely
packed block of soldiers all wielding an 18 foot long pike. Used in concert with other units such as heavy and light cavalry, missile troops and artillery, Philip created a terrifyingly
efficient killing machine that would be used by his son to conquer the known world. This lecture will explore the creation of the sarissa-phalanx, how Macedonian tactics
were able to overcome any opponent and how the Macedonian way of war was perfected by history’s greatest general: Alexander the Great. We will also look at the use of the
sarissa-phalanx after Alexander and how it handled the wars against Rome.
