Oklahoma-Based Tribe Buys Land Near Lawrence

KSAL StaffJuly 24, 2013

An Oklahoma-based Indian tribe has purchased 87 acres near Lawrence but has not yet announced any plans for the land.

The Delaware Tribe of Indians said in a news release that it might use the land along the Kansas Turnpike for housing, child car and a medical clinic.

A representative of the tribe said in March that the tribe was considering moving its headquarters from Bartlesville, Okla., because of restrictions it faces in Oklahoma.

The Lawrence Journal-World reported Wednesday (http://bit.ly/13czgvh ) a tribe spokesman declined to comment on whether the Delaware is considering building a casino on the land or moving its headquarters.

In 2000, the tribe considered building a casino complex in the same area but those plans stalled after strong opposition from neighbors.
