A news conference was held on Tuesday over 166 acres in the City of South Bend
that were taken into trust for the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians to use as
their tribal land. The decision was made by the Bureau of Indian Affairs.
The land is located between Locust Road, U.S. 31, and Prairie Avenue. The tribe
will be allowed to develop a casino and tribal village on the land.
A gaming compact still needs to be formed between Indiana and the tribe before
their casino could open. The compact would outline terms of an agreement. The
Pokagon is interested in obtaining a class III casino license. The compact would
outline terms for how much of the casino profits would go to the state and the
tribe's rights and responsibilities.
The Pokagon plan for the casino to be the largest in the state.
