OKLAHOMA CITY - The Shawnee Tribe wants to build a casino in Oklahoma City. They will ask the U.S. Department of the Interior to consider federal trust status for 104 acres of land on the west side of I-35 between Britton Road and Wilshire Blvd.  The tribe has a buy option for the land subject to federal approval.

If approved the Shawnee will build a casino, a hotel, and relocate their tribal headquarters which is now in Miami, OK.  The Interior Department's Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) generally considers ancestral land for trust status, however, in 1869 the Shawnee lost their lands.

The mayor of Oklahoma City, Mick Cornett, opposes a casino.
