There is speculation that a land purchase last year in Franklin County could develop into a future tribal casino. The land is 184 acres of farmland northeast of the King City Truck Stop in Pasco, Washington. It is east of Highway 395 just north of the King City Truck Stop. These are ancestral lands of the Palus, one of the twelve Tribes in the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation. The Colville Tribes purchased the 184 acres in May 2019 for $10.8 million.

The Colville Tribes currently own and operate three casinos in the state: 12 Tribes Omak Casino Hotel in Omak, 12 Tribes Lake Chelan Casino in Manson and 12 Tribes Coulee Dam Casino in Coulee Dam.

In November 2019 the City of Pasco and the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation signed an "Agreement in Principle" that defines a framework for cooperation in the future development of an economic enterprise that will be announced later. There several possibilities for the land including a casino, a water park, a hotel, or a convenience store and gas station.

In April 2022 the Colville has submitted a fee-to-trust application to the U.S. Department of Interior to transfer the land into federal trust for the tribes. Federal approval is required for authorizing a casino on tribal land. The approval process can take up to two years or longer.

Pasco Casino Project Update - Sept 2023

September 8, 2023

The Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation wants federal approval to build the first tribal casino in the Tri-Cities. An application was submitted to the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs last April, and it is currently under review in the Office of Indian Gaming.

The next step in the process will be a federal environmental impact study, which is expected to begin soon. In the meantime, the tribes have released the first artist renderings of the casino, which will include a hotel.

The federal approval of the Pasco casino is a 16-step process. The tribes expects a final decision by late 2024 or early 2025.

The Colville Tribes currently operate three casinos in north central Washington: 12 Tribes Coulee Dam Casino in Coulee Dam, 12 Tribes Lake Chelan Casino in Manson, and 12 Tribes Omak Casino Hotel in Omak.

The nearest tribal casinos to the Tr-Cities are the Wildhorse Casino and Resort, owned by the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Reservation in Pendleton, Oregon, and the Legends Casino & Hotel, owned by the Confederated Tribes and Bands of the Yakama Nation in Toppenish, Wahington.

Pasco casino application submitted to BIA

May 8, 2023

The Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation have applied to the Bureau of Indian Affairs to transfer 184 acres of tribe-owned land in Pasco into trust for the Colville Reservation. If approved, the Tribes will build a 12 Tribes casino, travel stop, and possibly a water park on the land.

"We're pleased to announce this important milestone in our efforts to enhance economic development for the Colville Tribes."

- Jarred-Michael Erickson, Colville Chairman

The federal application process to review and approve the casino proposal will take up to three to five years to complete.

The Pasco casino is strongly opposed by the Confederated Tribes and Bands of the Yakama Nation, which disputes the ancestral claims of the Colville tribe in the Tri-Cities area. The Tri-Cities include Kennewick, Pasco, and Richland with a combined population around 300,000. The Yakama plan to build their own casino in that area and are currently considering potential sites to purchase.

Colville Confederated Tribes plan casino in Pasco

April 20, 2021

The Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation are in the early stages of planning economic development projects for land in north Pasco. The tribes purchased 184 acres of land there in 2019 and 2020. The location is east of Highway 395 and north of the Kartchner Street exit on Capitol Avenue.

Project planning includes a casino with a convenience store and fuel station along with other retail property. At one time a water park was considered as a possibility.

The planning and approval process for an Indian gaming casino will take several years. If successful, a Pasco casino could be larger and employ more people than the other three casinos owned by the Colville Tribes. The tribes own 12 Tribes Resort Casino in Omak, WA, Coulee Dam Casino in Coulee Dam, WA and Mill Bay Casino in Manson, WA.

Pasco and the Tri-Cities region have deep historic and cultural ties to the Palus Tribe, a member of the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation.

Yakama Nation opposes potential Colville casino in Pasco

February 8, 2020

There is a dispute between the Yakama Nation and the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation over ancestral rights to 184 acres of farmland purchased in May 2019 by the Colville Tribes. At stake is a potential Colville casino on that land.

The Colville Tribes have applied to the U.S. Department of Interior to transfer the land into federal trust for the purpose of building a casino. The Tribes have also signed an agreement with the City of Pasco to work together on the project.

In a three-page letter to the Pasco City Council the Yakama Nation wrote: "This is the Yakama Nation's notice to the city of Pasco that we object to the Colville's attempt to lay any claim within the open and unclaimed lands of our treaty territory. We stand firm in our position that the Colvilles do not belong in Yakama Nation ancestral territories, and we remain prepared to oppose this development at every level."

Similar notices were sent to Gov. Jay Inslee, Franklin County, the cities of Kennewick and Richland, the U.S. Department of Interior and the Bureau of Indian Affairs.

The Colville Tribes claim the land as homeland of the Palus, now known as "Palouse," and one of the 12 tribes in the Colville Confederation.

The Yakama Nation claims the land was handed down from "Tamanwala, the Creator." The Yakama Treaty of June 9, 1855 identifies Pasco as part of the Yakama territory as "thence down the Snake River to its junction with the Columbia River; thence up the Columbia River to the 'White Banks,' below the Priest's Rapids."
