Oklahoma-Based Tribe Buys Land Near Lawrence

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — An Oklahoma-based Indian tribe has purchased 87 acres near Lawrence but has not yet announced any plans for the land. The Delaware Tribe of Indians said in a news release that it might use the land along the Kansas Turnpike for housing, child care and a medical clinic. A representative of the tribe said in March that the tribe was considering moving its headquarters from Bartlesville, Oklahoma because of restrictions it faces in Oklahoma. The Lawrence Journal-World reported Wednesday that a Delaware spokesman declined to comment on whether the tribe is considering building a casino on the land or moving its headquarters. In 2000, the tribe considered building a casino complex in the same area but those plans stalled after strong opposition from neighbors.
