Miguel Gandert was drawn to capturing the pursuit of happiness in the casinos of northern New Mexico because of its many ironies. "The early Spaniards were drawn to this part of the world in a laborious quest for the seven cities of gold; now, nearly five hundred years later, one of the most successful casinos in the region is Pojoaque Pueblo's, which is named Cities of Gold Casino." It is one of many gambling facilities built to provide employment and revenue so that the Pueblo communities can hold on to their culture and people.
