Muscogee Nation threatens lawsuit over Poarch Creek casino

The Muscogee Nation of Oklahoma is threatening legal action to stop the Poarch Creek Band of Indians from building a $246 million casino.

The Wind Creek Wetumpka is located on Poarch Creek trust land in Alabama. The Muscogees, however, say their ancestors are buried on the property, also known as the Hickory Ground.

The Muscogees haven't said what kind of legal action they might pursue.
