MONTGOMERY, Alabama - The Poarch Band of Creek Indians has resumed construction of a 20-story hotel and casino in Wetumpka after a brief delay for talks with Oklahoma Creeks upset with the development of what they say is sacred ancestral land.
The Poarch Band earlier this month halted construction on the project for discussions with the Muscogee Creek Nation. The Poarch Band announced this afternoon that following a meeting in Oklahoma this week they are proceeding with the project.
