Casino deals settle land claims

Two new settlement agreements have been reached between New York and the Oneida Tribe of Indians and the Stockbridge-Munsee Community, Band of Mohican Indians, Gov. George Pataki announced today.
The agreements would extinguish the Oneida Indian claims to land and natural resources in Oneida and Madison counties and authorize each tribe to develop a casino in the Catskills.
“The agreements with the Oneida Tribe and the Stockbridge-Munsee will finally end the Oneida Indian Land Claim, while creating thousands of new jobs in the Catskills and (providing) a tremendous boost to the region’s economy,” Pataki said.
The agreements must be approved by Congress and the state Legislature.
Pataki already has reached deals with the Cayuga Nation of New York and the Seneca-Cayuga Tribe of Oklahoma that would allow each to build a casino in the Catskills.
