Shinnecock Indian Nation
Police in Southampton said that as four members were coming home to the Shinnecock Indian Reservation the driver lost control and slammed into a tree, killing the driver, 33-year-old Jason King, and the front-seat passenger, 22-year-old Duane White.
It’s a 100-acre, uncleared location off exit 66 of the Long Island Expressway in Yaphank.
Some factions within the Shinnecock Indian Nation feel the tribe is giving away too much to its developer and financial partner in its plan to build casinos.
The Shinnecock Indian Nation says it is considering a 144-acre property for a possible casino site.
