The Lower Brule Sioux Tribe of South Dakota plans to spend $34 million on an off-reservation casino.

The tribe will relocate the existing Golden Buffalo Casino to the 91-acre site. Plans call for a casino with 500 slot machines and a travel plaza.

The tribe is proceeding under the two-part determination provisions of the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act. That means the state governor's approval will be needed.

“When the secretary of the interior makes a determination, then it is sent on to the governor of the state,” Richard Rangel, of RM Rangel Inc., said at a public meeting yesterday, The Mitchell Daily Republic reported. “At that time, then the governor makes a determination. So we have some hurdles to go through yet.”

The Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community of Minnesota has agreed to loan some money for the project, the paper said. A second phase could include an events center, hotel and water park.
