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 an Indian 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.
