The Poarch Band of Creek Indians is resuming work on its $246 million casino and hotel in Wetumpka.

Work on the 20-story project stopped two weeks ago after the Muscogee Nation of Creek Indians in Oklahoma objected to the plans. The Oklahoma tribe has historic ties to the land once known as Hickory Town Ground, and it objected to the graves of its ancestors being exhumed and moved.
