Casino - December 31, 2015

A PROPOSED CASINO AT KINGS MOUNTAIN, NC, AT THE NORTH CAROLINA, SOUTH CAROLINA STATELINE, IS OF INTEREST TO REDBIRD BAND. THE CATAWBA TRIBE IS STRONGLY RELATED TO CHEROKEE TRIBE THEN AND NOW. FOR EXAMPLE, THE KENTUCKY RIVER WAS ONCE KNOWN AS THE CATAWBY RIVER, PRIOR TO THE CURRENT CATAWBA RIVER NAME IN CAROLINA. OUR LINKS BETWEEN THE TWO TRIBES ARE VERY REAL AND ANCIENT. BOTH IN WAR AND PEACE, THE TWO TRIBES ARE LINKED IN TRADE IN VARIOUS WAYS. THEREFORE, REDBIRD BAND, PRESENTLY LOCATED NEAR KINGS MOUNTAIN, NC, IS WORKING ON THIS PROJECT, AND INTENDS TO BE A PLAYER IN THE INDIAN CASINO PROPOSAL NOW AT HAND IN OUR AREA. A MAY, 2014 US SUPREME COURT DECISION IN A BAYTOWN INDIAN COMMUNITY OF MICHIGAN CASINO RULING MAY HAVE AN IMPACT ON THE KINGS MOUNTAIN CASINO. IT MAY ENABLE THE PROJECT. THE COURT DECISION COULD PROVE AN IMPORTANT TURNING POINT.

     INDIAN CASINO UPDATE

CATAWBA NATION AND CATAWBA TRIBE OF YORK COUNTY, SC, NEAR US, AND CLEVLAND COUNTY, AND THE CITY OF KINGS MOUNTAIN, AND SOUTH OF CHARLOTTE, NC, IN THE CAROLINA UP COUNTRY, HAS A 700 ACRE RESERVATION. THE TRIBE HAS LINKS TO THE BLUE AND OTHER FAMILIES WITH CONNECTIONS TO OUR CHEROKEE FAMILIES THROUGHOUT OUR HISTORIES. WE MAY BE OF SERVICE IN THE MATTER, ESPECIALLY SHOULD THE NEED FOR A CERTIFICATE FOR THE CASINO INCLUDE CHEROKEE, SINCE THE CATAWBA ARE NOT OFFICALLY RECOGNIZED IN NORTH CAROLINA FOR CASINO CONSTRUCTION. CHEROKEE NATION, CHEROKEE, NC, NOW HAS THE ONLY CAROLINA INDIAN CASINO. IF THE CATAWBA CASINO PLACEMENT SHOULD FAIL WITH THE STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA, A REDBIRD BAND BINGO HALL AND/OR CHEROKEE CASINO BRANCH OF THE PRESENT CHEROKEE CASINO MAY POSSIBLY BE HELPFUL TO THE TRIBE, AS WELL AS CHEROKEE REDBIRD BAND. CHEROKEE NATION, ONE OF THE LARGEST INDIAN TRIBES, HAS NOT ENDORSED THE PROJECT, SINCE THIS IS A NEW CASINO ISSUE IN THE CAROLINAS. THE 45 ACRE SITE NEAR THE NC WELCOME CENTER, IS FOR SALE. VARIOUS PARTIES ARE PRESENTLY CONSIDERING PURCASE OF THE REAL ESTATE AND TRUCK STOP. LAND NEARBY MAY ALSO BE AVAILABLE TO ENLARGE THE PURCHASE. IN THE INTIAL STAGES, AND SUBJECT TO CHANGE, THE INDIAN CASINO PROJECT COULD HELP REDBIRD BAND. OUR LETTER OF INTEREST WILL GO OUT SOON. THE PROJECT IS VIABLE AND WOULD HELP THE AREA. THE CASINO PROJECT SHOULD INCLUDE RED BIRD BAND PARTICIPATION. WE ARE RELATED TO BOTH THE CATAWBA AND CHEROKEE. CATAWBA NATION HAS A PENDING APPLICATION WITH B.I.A. TO PLACE 16 ACRES OFF I-85 X 5 INTO A FEDERAL TRUST FOR THE TRIBE. IT IS SEEKING A $600 MILLION DOLLAR CASINO. THE NEW YEAR OF 2016 A.D. MAY BRING MORE NEWS ON THE PROJECT. WE ARE QUALIFIED TO WORK ON THIS PROJECT, AND WILL PARTICIPATE. OUR PEOPLE WERE IN THE BATTLE OF KINGS MOUNTAIN ON THE COLONIAL SIDE AT THAT TIME, AND DID HELP WIN THE REVOLUTION. YOU OWE IT TO US.
