Actor Peter Coyote Announces Support for Koi Nation Casino Project in Sonoma County

Published

on

 

Actor and author Peter Coyote, long associated with environmental causes, has announced his support for the creation of the Koi Nation’s planned Shiloh Resort & Casino.

“The Shiloh Resort and Casino, with its dedicated tax dollars recirculating in and through the community, might honestly be classified as a critical need today,” Peter Coyote said. The Koi Nation is “overdue to receive this opportunity to regain their historic self-sufficiency and create a stable economic base for the tribe.”

Coyote has narrated a short video for the Koi Nation, one of the oldest federally-recognized Native American tribes in California. The educational video emphasizes the Tribe’s commitment to developing its Shiloh Resort & Casino in harmony with the natural beauty of its land in Sonoma County.

The Shiloh Resort & Casino will be a destination resort that will provide an economic base for the Tribe, built on property the Tribe acquired after having been landless since the federal government forced the sale of its Lower Lake Rancheria in the 1950s. With a 400-room hotel, entertainment venues, and a variety of gaming options, the resort will provide income and jobs for the Tribe and its members as well as economic benefits to the community.

One of the most important aspects of the resort, highlighted in the video, is the way the project’s design fits into the landscape of its wine country location.

The video helps members of the community better understand and visualize the project and see for themselves how the Koi Nation designed the project with respect for the environment.

“Our people lived in this region for thousands of years, always with great respect for the land, and that has remained a core part of our Tribe even as we were made landless. Now that the Tribe once again has acquired property of its own, we have not forgotten the importance of that relationship, which is why we have designed the Shiloh Resort & Casino with the careful attention to its setting you can see in the video,” Tribal Chairman Darin Beltran said.

“We are pleased to have an individual with Peter Coyote’s strong environmental stance as the narrator for our video. It’s important to us to communicate our commitment to the land and nature with our neighbors throughout Sonoma County. This video lets them see for themselves the beauty of the site and of what we are building,” Dino Beltran, Koi Nation Vice Chair and Director of Development, said.

The Koi Nation of Northern California has executed a predevelopment agreement with Global Gaming Solutions (GGS), a wholly-owned business enterprise of the Chickasaw Nation of Oklahoma, to engage as the Koi’s development partner for its planned Shiloh Casino & Resort in Sonoma County. GGS will also act as the manager and operator of the establishment when completed.

The Chickasaw Nation, with its tribal headquarters in Ada, Oklahoma, has an exemplary track record in developing and operating tribal gaming operations and related resort properties. It operates 23 gaming establishments around the nation, including Winstar World Casino and Resort, the largest casino in the world. The Chickasaw Nation also operates nearly 200 additional highly successful businesses, giving it a broad range of commercial expertise that makes it the ideal partner to develop and manage the Shiloh Resort & Casino.

The Shiloh Casino & Resort will include a 2750 Class III gaming machine facility, a 400-room hotel, six restaurant and food service areas, a meeting center and a spa, as well as a state-of-the-art live entertainment venue. The property will employ more than 1100 full-time workers when fully operational.

Hard Rock International (HRI) announced its plans to cease operations of The Mirage Hotel & Casino as of July 17, 2024, to begin the transformation of the property into the highly anticipated Hard Rock Hotel & Casino and Guitar Hotel Las Vegas (HRHCLV).

Hard Rock will develop a new integrated resort featuring a nearly 700 ft. guitar-shaped hotel towering prominently in the center of the famous Las Vegas Strip.

“We’d like to thank the Las Vegas community and team members for warmly welcoming Hard Rock after enjoying 34 years at The Mirage. We’d also like to thank the Unions, community leaders, local and state government organizations and the Gaming Commission for their support and fair negotiations over the past year. Also, we are grateful to MGM for assisting with our transition,” Jim Allen, Chairman of Hard Rock International, said.

“While we pause for the incredible transformation of this iconic property, I’d like to thank all team members at The Mirage for their incredible commitment and helping us provide memorable experiences for our guests. We are planning to host collaborative hiring events with other employers in the Las Vegas community over the coming months. Connecting the thousands of talented Mirage team members who provide outstanding service with new employment opportunities is a top priority,” Joe Lupo, President of The Mirage, said.

HRHCLV is expected to double the current number of jobs at The Mirage for the Las Vegas community, while the renovation of the property will generate over 2500 construction jobs. Hard Rock will pay approximately $80 million in severance packages for eligible union and non-union employees remaining with the property through cessation of operations.
