Brooke D. Thomas (Wolf Clan) started out as a blackjack dealer for Turning Stone Resort Casino in 2014 and was recently promoted to floor supervisor for the casino this past winter. She will turn 26 years old in April. Brooke has enjoyed her position and is excited to see where the future will take her.

“I never knew I would be where I am now,” Brooke said reflecting on her experience and recent promotion. “The Nation has helped me tremendously to succeed and I am forever grateful for the opportunities that we have.”

When she’s not working at Turning Stone, Brooke likes to share her cultural heritage through traditional Haudenosaunee dancing; participating in several Nation events throughout the year and, of course, at the Indian Village at the New York State Fair. Last year at the fair, Brooke took home first place in the Smoke Dance competition.
