Federal Government Tells Choctaws NO

The federal government delivered the same message to The Mississippi Band of Choctaws as voters did in November - there will be no Choctaw casino in Jackson County.

The Choctaws were one of 11 tribes to receive letters from the Department of Interior's Bureau of Indian Affairs last week rejecting their bids for off-reservation casinos because the sites are too far from the reservation

Our vote didn't count, but luckily this 'NO' actually means no casino.
