The principal chief of the Osage Nation said Sept. 7, at a Pawhuska Chamber of Commerce luncheon, that Oct. 4 is the projected date for a soft opening of the new Osage Casino at Pawhuska.

The Osage Nation broke ground on the casino-hotel, which is to have 47 hotel rooms, in June of 2021, with the intent of completing the project by the fall of 2022. Supply chain problems and increased costs slowed the work.

Chief Geoffrey Standing Bear told the Chamber audience of about 35-40 people that he anticipates the opening of a new casino-hotel at Bartlesville a couple of months after the Pawhuska soft opening.
