The Forest County Potawatomi tribe is condemning another tribe’s proposal for an off reservation casino approved Friday by the federal Bureau of Indian Affairs.
The Menominee tribe wants to build a gaming facility in Kenosha. But Potawatomi Spokesperson George Ermert says the area falls within Potawatomi ceded territory.
“Potawatomi historical lands have traditionally stretched from the tip of Door County, all along the shores of Lake Michigan. So for one tribe to go on another tribe’s historical lands is a very very big deal.”
