An Indian tribe in Oklahoma wants Alabama's Poarch Creek Indians to halt plans to build a 20-story hotel and casino on tribal land in Wetumpka. The Muscogee Nation has historic ties to the land and is objecting to the graves of its ancestors being exhumed and moved to make way for the expansion by the Poarch Creeks. Principal Chief George Tiger says the Poarch Creeks don't share their respect for traditional ways and the burial ground should be restored to the way it was.
