Lower Brule Sioux Tribe to discuss off-reservation casino plan

The Lower Brule Sioux Tribe will meet with officials in Oacoma, South Dakota, to discuss plans for an off-reservation casino.

The tribe wants to build a $34 million casino on a 91-acre site that was taken into trust in 2011. The site is only five miles from the exterior border of the reservation.

The Bureau of Indian Affairs is taking comments from local and state officials for the proposal. If approved by the agency, the state governor would need to concur.
