September 3, 1989
Mohawks fought with baseball bats and clubs outside a casino over the issue of gambling on the St. Regis Indian Reservation in New York state, an issue that has sharply divided the tribe. The clash resulted in minor injuries, but state police, who raided Indian gambling establishments last July, immediately sealed off the entire 22,000-acre reservation. Last weekend, one casino was set afire, leading the owner of another to station men with automatic weapons on the roof of his establishment.

As we come up on the 25th anniversary of Stonewall--that is, the June 28-29 Stonewall riots in Greenwich Village, the watershed moment in the struggle for gay and lesbian freedom--I find my own capacity for celebration more subdued than I would like. Tempered by caution, almost rueful. Not that I ever cease to honor those nights of resistance, the bottles lobbed and the air thick with catcalls as a ragtag band of bar queens made it clear they'd had enough of police harassment.
