Feds Reject Kansas Tribal Casino Land Application

KSAL StaffJuly 7, 2014

The federal government has refused to accept a tract of suburban Wichita land into trust so an Indian tribe can build a casino there.

The Kansas Attorney General’s Office said Monday that the Interior Department rejected a request from the Wyandotte Nation of Oklahoma to take the land into trust. The Wyandotte Nation bought the tract in Park City in 1992.

The Indian Gaming Regulatory Act allows tribes to conduct gambling only on Indian lands, which are defined as land within a reservation or held in trust by the United States.

But the Interior Department has found that the tribe did not have sufficient trust funds to have purchased both the Park City land and a Kansas City tract where it has already built a casino.
