Mashpee tribe moves a step closer to building Massachusetts casino

12 February 2013

The Boston Globe reports today that the Mashpee Wampanoag tribe says it has received a preliminary opinion from the Interior Department that moves the tribe a step closer to building a casino in Taunton.

According to the Globe, the department, in what the tribe called a “preliminary advisory opinion,” found that the Mashpee lands in Taunton qualify as an initial reservation and that status would mean that the tribe would be able to conduct gaming there under the federal Indian Gaming Regulatory Act.
