I just heard today that the land isn't owned or federal Indian land but is being leased by the tribe from two sisters who are Muskogee nation Indians and have nothing to do with this tribe...this tribe is far south of Tulsa from what I gather....so they can tear the land up and build on it but can't operate gaming in reality....

Thoughts?

From what I know the tribe is a "sub tribe" of the Muscogee Creek tribe.  The land was originally allocated to a Muscogee Creek who is on the Dawes roll.  Since it has never left Native American ownership it doesn't have to go through the trust process that other land that left Native American ownership has to go through.

A "tribal town" to be exact.

That's what they were saying on the news last night, though the hyperbole was getting a bit deep about all the LED billboards, crime, drugs, gangsters, frogs, and locusts this will attract.

Can Broken Arrow really be forced to provide taxpayer-owned infrastructure (Roads, sewer, water, etc.) to a "sovereign nation"?
What law compels this?

Running the water lines to connect to the city services are the only items they need a permit for, so I would guess they are footing the bill for that.  Although, I could be wrong.  If I was BA city leadership I wouldn't like it.  They need tax producing retail, not tax sucking casinos & non-tax paying churches.

I guess if Claremore can have a casino, BA can two...the two most church loving cities in Oklahoma per square foot...

Yeah...well I didn't want the Rhema cult to move to BA - could have stayed on Sheridan, or another 75,000 people, changing the town so much from what it used to be.  So, all these "newby" complainers - anyone there since 1975 - should just sit down and shut up.  Or move back to Tulsa where they came from.


Whiners.
