Menominee Indian tribal leader Craig Corn to deliver "State of the Tribes" address

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The head of the Menominee Indian nation will discuss the status of all 11 Wisconsin tribes when he delivers an annual address to the state Legislature.

Craig Corn will present the "State of the Tribes" address on February 13th.

Corn's tribe is trying to get Governor Scott Walker to approve a new Menominee off-reservation casino in Kenosha, even though two other tribes oppose it. The issue seems to have downplayed other concerns raised by the state's Native American tribes.

A year ago, Lac Courte Oreilles Chairman Gordon Thayer accused the state of not giving the tribes enough credit, hurting natural resources with its support of mining, and spreading propoganda about Indian spearfishing.

Assembly Speaker Pro Tem Bill Kramer walked out of the address because it made him so upset. Kramer later became the Assembly's GOP majority leader.
