Ho-Chunk Nation to discuss plans for Chicago area

Leaders of the Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin will meet today and tomorrow to discuss plans for land the tribe owns outside of Chicago.

The tribe invested $20 million in the village of Lynwood, near the Indiana border. So far, the tribe has opened a sports complex and hosted a professional boxing match.

Ideally, the tribe would like to open a casino on the land. But leaders say they want to move forward with other development if that doesn't happen.
