Bluntly, I wouldn't go anywhere near this without hiring a local attorney to represent the tribe on this matter. This is simply a high risk venture and proceeding without strong legal counsel opens the tribe to significant liability without a solid analysis of the risk or good cover in the event of enforcement by federal agencies (you don't want to be the "test case" without solid preparation).You can find local attorneys using the State and local Bar Association directories, or private directories such as www.AVVO.com; www.FindLaw.com; or www.Martindale.com (I personally find www.AVVO.com to be the most user friendly).
