Minn. Indian band plans $10M Mille Lacs resort

ONAMIA, Minn. (AP) — The Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe is continuing to expand into the hospitality industry.

The band announced plans Tuesday to build a $10 million resort on the site of the current Eddy’s Resort on Mille Lacs (muh laks) Lake.

A Mille Lacs Band spokesman tells WJON-AM (http://bit.ly/1iilRee ) the band is also building eight private cabins.

Groundbreaking is planned this spring, with construction to be completed by November.

The Mille Lacs Band has owned Eddy’s Resort since 2002.

Last year the band acquired two downtown St. Paul hotels. The Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe is known for its Grand Casino and hotels in Hinkley and Onamia (oh-NAYM’-ee-uh).
