May 20, 2018

After decades of endless debates and absence from the casino, the Hopi Community on Tuesday, 8th May 2018 officially became part of the larger Indian gaming industry.

At least, that’s what our “Been There” Starbucks mug says. The mug series, released in March, features different designs for each of the 50 states. Starbucks said its artist was “inspired by Arizona’s nickname of ‘The Sand Hill State.'” So where did the nickname come from? “Yep, Sand Hills State is one of our nicknames, and for the life of me, I can’t figure out why or where it came from,” Arizona’s official state historian Marshall Trimble said in an email when we asked about the sobriquet’s origin.
