A band of Cherokee Indians in Oklahoma wants to return to their ancestral home in north Georgia and build a casino.

The Georgia Legislature has been toying with the idea of casinos for the past couple of legislative sessions, but the United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee Indians says that they have “status superior” under federal law to build a casino in Georgia.

The Keetoowah Band of Cherokees was driven from Georgia during the Trail of Tears in the 1830’s.

The tribe has written Governor Nathan Deal informing him of their ideas about building the casino, citing Cherokee County, Georgia as a possible location.
