DEMING - The Fort Sill Chiricahua Apache tribe will build a $20 million casino off Interstate 10 in Akela Flats, located 18 miles east of Deming and about 40 miles west of Las Cruces.

The casino will be 11,000-square-feet and feature Class II-style gaming, such as high-stakes bingo and certain table games. Groundbreaking is expected next year and the grand opening will be in 2010.

Until then a temporary casino will open in 2-3 months just west of the Akela Flats Trading Post. It will consist of eight trailers bound together with an outer fašade.

The address of the casino will be 20885 Frontage Road SE, Deming, NM 88030.

About the Fort Sill Chiricahua Apache
The Chiricahua was a band of Apaches that lived in southwestern New Mexico and southeastern Arizona. They had family ties to Geronimo. The group was the last to surrender in the Apache Indian wars, and its members were sent to Florida as prisoners of war. Later they settled at the Fort Sill military reservation in Oklahoma.
