The Seneca-Cayuga Tribe of Oklahoma are working on another request to put land in Cayuga County into trust. If successful plans to build a new casino on the property will follow. The tribe's first attempt that was denied by the federal government five years ago.

On January 2, officials for the county received a letter from the federal bureau of Indian Affairs. The letter stated that the Seneca-Cayuga tribe had applied to put land into trust, where part of the land would be used for a future center for entertainment. The land that is proposed for the trust is 229 acres in Aurelius and Montezuma.

If the application is approved by the BIA, then the land will be removed from future tax rolls. This could effect the local area around $9,541 to the tax entities.

The land was previously bought in $738,554 by the tribe in 2002. The vacant property was bought as part of their plan to build a casino hotel that would be off their tribal land.

Politics and lawsuits proved difficult for the tribe to continue with their plans.In 2008, the BIA ruled that the proposed plan would not provide enough job opportunities for the tribe because their reservation was 1,500 miles away.

After five years, the Seneca-Cayuga tribe have decided to renew their plans for the land. This time, they want to make the land part of their reservation. Allowing for them to build a full gaming casino on their land.

If approved, the casino will operate slot machines and other video gaming machines, blackjack, and poker.
