The whole resort highly resonates with the tribe’s culture. More than 20 tribal artists were hired to create unique art pieces for the property, and public spaces currently contain more than 40 unique pieces. On top of that, there are two large sculptures placed outside, as well as an additional 600 art pieces in guest rooms.

One of the most famous Choctaw artists, Gene Smith, worked on an interactive circular steel sculpture located on the property’s entrance. The sculpture shows Choctaw Social Dancers and the guests will get a chance to join the interactive dance and dive into the rich history of the tribe. 

In total, the resort cost about $238 million, and it will provide more than 400 people with jobs. As Ok News reported, it is estimated that the region will earn $95 million from the resort.

Dr. Kyle Dean, an Economist for the Center for Native American Studies at Oklahoma City University, discussed the economic impact and prepared a thorough report. According to him, the tribe’s impact on both southeastern Oklahoma and the whole state is significant, since the tribe supported 20,142 jobs in 2021, and because of that the state’s residents earned around $1 billion in wages and benefits.
