Casino trip to locate a lost key

Visited a Native American casino in Oklahoma about a 1 ½ drive north of Dallas, Texas. Choctaw Casino Resort in Durant, Oklahoma. This is a return trip to locate a lost key and to deposit more money to the owners of the casino.

The first casino built on this site was in 1987 and is the first of the Choctaw gaming franchise. Part of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma.

The Choctaw in Oklahoma were originally from Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, and Louisiana. They were part of the Indian removal known as the Trail of Tears in 1831 to Indian Territory, today’s Oklahoma. This was a result of the Indian Removal Act of 1830, and carried out by President Andrew Jackson.
