Download(PDF): Letter of Notification

From the Tribe:

The Stockbridge-Munsee Tribe announced today that it has notified the State of Wisconsin of its intent to withhold its revenue sharing payment of $923,000 due to the State’s violation of its gaming compact with the tribe.

The State is in violation of two sections of its compact with the Stockbridge-Munsee by:

  • Allowing the Ho-Chunk Nation to unlawfully operate its Wittenberg Casino on lands not eligible for Indian gaming under IGRA since 2008.
  • Allowing the Ho-Chunk Nation to operate the Wittenberg Casino beyond the scope permitted in Ho-Chunk Nation’s gaming compact with the State since 2008.

More information and supporting documents can be found on the tribal website.
