On June 27, the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians  (“Tribe”) swore in newly elected chairman, Aaron Payment of Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan.  The former chairman defeated incumbent Joe Eitrem with 56.3 percent of the vote.  Mr. Payment previously served as chairman from 2004-08.

Notably, the Tribe has proposed plans to build a 125,000 square-foot gaming facility in downtown Lansing that would house an estimated 3,000 slot machines and 48 table games. The Tribe, however, must now seek approval from the federal government in order to move forward with the project.  The Tribe operates the five Kewadin casinos in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.  www.kewadin.com
