Broken Arrow, OK –
BROKEN ARROW, Okla. (AP) A Native American tribe leader is defending a proposal to build a casino in Broken Arrow. The town king for Kialegee Tribal Town, Tiger Hobia, says the tribe has no other real options for economic development. He says he's disappointed by Republican Representative John Sullivan's letter to the gaming commission urging it to keep residents' concerns about the casino in mind.
