The chief executive officer of Ho-Chunk Inc., the economic development corporation of the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska, will appear at the third annual Native Nations Law Symposium.

The symposium takes place on Thursday at the Sac and Fox Nation casino in Kansas. Lance Morgan, a tribal member, will speak on Thursday about economic development on reservations.

Morgan and the tribe are currently in a legal battle with Kansas state officials. The state alleges the tribe owes $1.25 million in gas distribution taxes.

The state issued a criminal warrant against Morgan and Winnebago chairman John Blackhawk. The proceedings were stayed when a federal judge barred the state from acting.

Indianz.Com and AllNative.Com are owned by Ho-Chunk Inc.
