The Mishewal Wappo Indians of Alexander Valley — who are suing the U.S. government to restore their tribal status — have no plans for a casino, according to their leader.
“We are trying to get back what was taken from us,” said Scott Gabaldon, chair of the Wappos’ tribal council.
The tribe won’t decide on future plans until it has regained federal recognition, he said.
