Flintco Construction Solutions (Flintco) was selected as the General Contractor on the expansion of the Wind Creek Casino at Wetumpka, Alabama by the Poarch Band of Creek Indians. The Poarch Band of Creek Indians is building their "deluxe resort" on top of an ancestral burial site and the ceremonial land of Hickory Ground. Approximately 60 remains of Muscogee Creek ancestors have been dug up from the burial ground and placed in sheds on the property to make way for the expansion of the casino. Repeated requests by Hickory Ground members in Oklahoma and the Muscogee Creek Nation of Oklahoma to the Poarch Band of Creek Indians to alter their plans and stop the desecration have gone unheeded.
Flintco claims to be a Native American owned business that is sensitive to cultural nuances and respect for traditional values. If that were so they would refuse to desecrate the sacred ancestral homelands of Hickory Ground.
We hereby petition the Muscogee Creek Nation of Oklahoma National Council to officially place an embargo on engaging in trade, taking bids or doing business with Flintco Construction Solutions throughout all subsidiaries, divisions, departments and independent agencies under the auspices of the Nation. We ask the National Council of the Muscogee Creek Nation to pass a resolution condemning the action of Flintco and to formally forbid ALL of the Muscogee Creek Nation government agencies from entering into ANY new contracts, agreements, MOU's, partnerships or any other type business transaction with Flintco from this date forward. This embargo must stay in effect until such time as Flintco honors the creed for which they tout on their website and ends construction over the ancestral and ceremonial homelands of Hickory Ground.
