Spokane Tribe Casino in Airway Heights to open Monday

Spokane Tribe Casino in Airway Heights to open Mondayā€¯

The Spokane Tribe Casino was first proposed in 2006, when the tribe asked the Bureau of Indian Affairs if land in Airway Heights was suitable for an off-reservation casino.

Tribal Chairwoman Carol Evans says the tribe has been working for 30 years to make this casino a reality.

The casino project was approved by United States Department of Interior nearly ten years ago.

Located on 145 acres of ancestral land on U.S. Highway 2 in Airway Heights, Washington, the Spokane Tribe of Indians held a soft opening on Friday evening for local media, tribal officials and few others. Phase one of what will reportedly be a 10-year $400 million development is now complete and will open Monday evening at 7pm.

Spokane Tribal leaders said the casino is built on land their ancestors once lived on and fought for in the Plains War of 1858. The casino is now hiring for most positions. A full service restaurant and bar are also included in the new building.

Over the years the project raised concerns with Fairchild Air Force Base and rival casino Northern Quest.

Despite that opposition, the construction moved forward.

Tonight they opened their doors for us, and showed off their new 38,000 square ft. casino.
