Redding Rancheria ousts residents to build new hotel at casino

The Redding Rancheria of California is evicting two families to make way for a new hotel at its casino.

The tribe removed Madeline Miller, a non-Indian, and her family from the property on Tuesday, The Redding Record-Searchlight reported. The tribe agreed to relocate her trailer but she disputed whether she was properly served with an eviction notice.

"I'm not Native American; I'm full Italian. But I know California law," Miller told the paper.

The tribe is also evicting a second family, the Foremans, from their home on the property. The Foremans were removed from the rolls in 2004.

The tribe is spending $40 million to build an 84-room hotel an outdoor swimming pool, an arcade, a fitness center and a 3,929-square-foot spa at the Win-River Casino.
