Tohono O'odham Nation said to be in talks with hockey team





The Tohono O'odham Nation of Arizona is said to be in talks for a role with a professional hockey team.

Reports are conflicting but the tribe could purchase a majority stake in the Phoenix Coyotes. Or the tribe could end up in a sponsorship deal with the team.

The Coyotes are based in Glendale, where the tribe is facing opposition to plans for a casino. The federal and state courts have sided with the tribe so far.
