Kansas Kickapoo rebuts claims over ‘Indian preference’

Wichita, Kansas (AP) 9-09

The Kickapoo Tribe in Kansas is contesting a lawsuit filed by the former acting casino manager who claims he was discriminated against when he was not given a so-called Indian preference for the job.

The tribe filed its court response Aug. 26 to the lawsuit by Robert Nanomantube against the Kickapoo tribe, its tribal council and the Golden Eagle Casino.

His lawsuit contends the tribe racially discriminated against him and other American Indian applicants when it hired a “non-Indian” for the general manager’s job at the Horton, Kan., casino.

The tribe says in court documents Nanomantube was not qualified for the position.
