A Native American tribe from Humboldt County is interested in developing a casino in the Central Valley. However the plan is being opposed by competing tribes that currently own casinos.
The North Fork Rancheria Band of Mono Indians' is interested is in an area of land that is located 40 miles from their reservation. The tribe believes that historically the land belongs to them. However, groups opposed to the plan believe that the tribe is looking for a prime casino location.
The Wiyot Tribe has made an agreement with the North Fork tribe. The proposed casino will pay a portion of the revenue the Wiyot Tribe for not building their own casino north of Humboldt Bay.
Proposition 48 goes before the voters this November. If approved, the North Fork Casino will be allowed to continue with plans.
