Nicole Jackson is the manager of the Wapi Eagle Casino and head of the Kalimish tribe. When Sarah comes looking for evidence that Rosie visited the casino the night she disappeared, Nicole insists that she would never have permitted a minor on the premises and denies Sarah's request to interview customers who might have seen Rosie. Reminding Sarah that she lacks jurisdiction on Indian land, Nicole then orders her to leave the casino.
Nicole colludes with Jamie and Michael Ames to cover up Rosie’s murder. She repeatedly prevents Sarah from carrying out her investigation on Indian land, and her security guards beat Holder into unconsciousness when he pokes around the casino without a warrant.
