Lower Brule Sioux Tribe proceeds with off-reservation casino

The Lower Brule Sioux Tribe of South Dakota has submitted an off-reservation casino application to the Bureau of Indian Affairs.

The tribe wants to build a $34 million casino on a 91-acre site that was taken into trust in 2011. The application will be processed under the two-part determination provisions of the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act, meaning the state governor's approval will be required.

The tribe only plans to use 12 acres of the site for the casino.
