GLENDALE Leaders of four Apache and Yavapai tribes have announced opposition to the West Valley casino plan unveiled last January by the Tohono O'odham Nation. The Tohono O'odham want to build the casino resort on 134 acres near Glendale.

Last month the Gila River Indian Community also expressed their objections to the plan citing the existing Indian gaming compacts with the state.

For similar reasons the Apache and Yavapai tribes say the West Valley proposal is a clear violation of the spirit of the 17 Tribes Initiative passed by Arizona voters in 2002.

That ballot measure provided tribes with the exclusive right to operate casino gaming in exchange for sharing its revenue with state and local governments. It also limited the number, size and location of future casinos.
