American Indians are seeking to construct their own embassy, similar to ones that foreign nations have in Washington to house their diplomats from different countries. Vice Chairman of the the casino-wealthy Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community Glynn Crooks said, "We are a sovereign nation, and all the other nations that are sovereign have an embassy." The National Congress of American Indians is making moves to secure a location on Massachusetts Avenue’s Embassy Row for what could be the Embassy of Tribal Nations, by putting a $21 million bid on a building in DuPont Circle. Sen. Ben Nighthorse Campbell (R.-Colo.) and former Bureau of Indian Affairs Chief Dave Anderson have both donated $50,000 to the project and the Shakopee that own Minnesota’s Mystic Lake Casino, has put forth a $1 million matching grant towards the planned embassy.
