Prior Lake City Council opposes Shakopee tribe's land plans

 


The Prior Lake City Council is appealing to the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs in a land dispute that has divided local officials and may sour the city’s relationship with the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community (SMSC).

The Shakopee tribe, which owns and operates Mystic Lake Casino Hotel and other area businesses, has been buying land and putting it into trust — a federal designation that allows it to keep the land forever, tax-free.
