The Eastern Tribe of Oklahoma is looking for property for a new casino project. An announcement was made 5 years ago about the tribes plans to build several casino resorts in Ohio. Several communities were sought after. Massillon and Canal Fulton in Stark County. As well as Lordstown in Trumbull County. Around the same time, a federal land-claim suit was also filed by the tribe in 2005 for 146 square miles of Western Ohio to be returned. However that was rejected. Casino plans seemed to have disappeared after that. The communities began to wonder if the Shawnee would be able to continue with the plans.

Recently, Clark Hosick, requested tax maps for possible Shawnee casino sites at the Summit County Office Building. Hosick is the executive director of Native American Educational Service. A non profit group. He is also the former head of Akron's North American Indian Cultural Center.

Chief Glenna Wallace stated last week that the tribe is still interested in building the casinos, however there are no authorized representatives from the tribe looking for locations.
Ohio voted in favor of four casinos to be built in Cincinnati, Columbus, Cleveland, and Toledo. That decision was made by voters last fall. It was also agreed by state legislators to allow horse tracks to operate video lottery terminals.

Currently the tribe operates the Outpost Casino in Wyandotte, Oklahoma. They also operate Boardertown Bingo and Casino in Seneca, Missouri.

Since the Eastern Shawnee currently do not have reservation land in Ohio, the tribe may have to place some of their land into a federal trust. This will need state approval.

The Shawnee had land in Ohio until 1830 when they were forced to relocate.
