Tribe Sets Casino Date: Five Years

Glenna Wallace, chief of the Eastern Shawnee Tribe of Oklahoma has set a schedule of five years until a casino is opened in one of four locations in Ohio according to a recent article in the Lima News. Once a final land claim settlement is reached, the next obstacle that the Tribe must overcome is having Ohio land taken into trust by the Bureau of Indian Affairs. Until then, federal law prohibits tribal gaming. However, the Bureau can set its own timeline for approving the land trust. The article notes that the Tribe purchased several acres in Oklahoma over seven years ago, and is still awaiting a decision on its trust agreement.
