Word definitions factor into debate between Prior Lake, Shakopee tribe

For almost a year, the city of Prior Lake and the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community have been at odds over a 95-acre piece of land.

The tribe wants to put the parcel into trust, a federal designation that would ensure permanent, tax-free ownership. But the city wants to build a road there — and some local leaders are worried that standing by while more land is put into trust will set an unwieldy precedent.
