American resort management spearheads waterpark project rooted in native american culture
DATE: 24 September, 2020


Belcourt, North Dakota - Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians partners with American Resort Management to create a one-of-a-kind waterpark design built to emanate the Tribe's Native American culture and history.


"This new project is incredibly special to our Tribe," shared Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians Chairman, Jamie Azure, "We aim to create a world-class community asset that will stimulate cultural awareness and education for our local community."


The Tribe brought on ARM, a nationwide indoor waterpark expert, to lead the pre-opening scope of services, operations training, marketing, and to provide general management, as well as the development of ongoing park operations. The waterpark will be open year-round and will feature a 23,000 sq. ft. regional entertainment complex, adventure slides, a lazy river, a climbing wall, rope swings, a kid's aquatic play structure, and so much more.


"This project is one the local community will be proud and excited to enjoy," said Richard Coleman, CEO and Co-Founder of American Resort Management. "It will shine a light on the values and tradition of the tribe, all while being an inviting destination for people of all ages."


On top of first-rate food and beverage service at the park, the facility will also showcase private party rooms, luxurious cabana rentals, a seasonal outdoor multi-purpose sun deck, and a sports bar on the second level. The sports bar will be designed to acknowledge and recognize the significant accomplishments and pride of the local community by featuring local schools, local athletic programs and significant individual, team, and community awards and championships.


"With over 25 years of experience partnering with tribes and casinos, this is a unique project I am especially excited to help The Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians bring to the greater community," said Frank Pracukowski, ARM's Senior VP of Business Development.
