The impact on the Stockbridge-Munsee is by far the greatest. Our North Star Mohican Casino Resort is the largest employer in Shawano County, accounts for 96 percent of earned governmental revenue and is just 16 miles from Ho-Chunk’s Wittenberg site.
The Ho-Chunk Wittenberg expansion will not grow the Wisconsin economy, but will instead take revenues from other, far smaller tribes. The Ho-Chunk already operate four of the state’s 10 largest casinos. With the Wittenberg expansion, Ho-Chunk will have five of the state’s 10 largest under its control.
