Menominee Nation withdraws from off-reservation gaming deal

The Menominee Nation of Wisconsin has split from its off-reservation gaming partner.

Chairman Craig Corn said the split with KMD Consulting Services of California was amicable. But he indicated the company wasn't able to meet its financial and other obligations for the project.

The tribe is now looking for another partner as it awaits approval of its land-into-trust application. Corn said the Bureau of Indian Affairs is still reviewing it in the Midwest office.

“It’s an election year in Washington — that brings a whole other dynamic to it,” Corn told The Kenosha News. “But we’re hoping to have approval by November or December.”

KMD was the third group to work with the Menominee Nation on converting the shuttered Dairyland Greyhound Park into a casino. The company is now working with the Aquinnah Wampanoag Tribe of Massachusetts.
