A coalition of current and former elected officials, public agencies, labour unions, tribal governments and members of the general public have voiced their support for the Koi Nation’s proposed Shiloh Resort and Casino project.
The Koi Nation is currently awaiting approval of the environmental assessment of its the project.
The proposed venue will be a destination resort that will provide an economic base for the Koi Nation’s citizens, built on property acquired after having been landless since long before the federal government forced the sale of the uninhabitable Lower Lake Rancheria in the 1950s.
“The Koi Nation is overjoyed its proposed project has received overwhelming support from a broad cross-section of the community, fellow tribes, and the public,” said Darin Beltran, chairman of the Koi Nation Tribal Council.
“The coalition of our supporters share a recognition of the project’s immense value potential for the Sonoma County community and the moral imperative underlying our effort to right historical wrongs and re-establish our people’s tribal land base.”
