Another Anti Casino Ruling


The National Indian Gaming Commission may have killed the Kialegee's Red Clay Casino Friday. The casino is under construction at 111th South and 129th East Avenue.

The commission says the land plot, on which the Kialegee Tribal Town is building a casino, does not belong to them and the construction is not legal

The solicitor general at the Bureau of Indian Affairs agreed with the decision, NIGC chairwoman Tracie Stevens wrote in a directive to the Kialegees. "I direct the Kialegee Tribal Town not to commence gaming on the proposed site, whether the operation is tribally or individually owned.”
