Native American History

The Catawba Indians want to build a $340 million casino and resort in Kings Mountain, North Carolina – which is 45 miles northwest of their reservation in Rock Hill, South Carolina.  They've applied for federal permission to make the land a sort of annex to their reservation. 

They may also need approval from North Carolina's governor and General Assembly – but both are cool to the concept. So why not just build a casino on the tribe's existing reservation just off I-77?
