Coushatta Tribal dancers and drummers will perform a short program during the program. A cake-cutting will follow.

“As construction commences, we are excited about all the new venues and upgrades that we will be able to offer our guests, starting with this new hotel,” Tribal Chairman Jonathan Cernek said in a press release. ” Our goal is to offer our players an elevated gaming experience, and that includes top-quality lodgings and high-end dining options. The Coushatta Tribe is leading the way in building an unsurpassed resort destination, both in the local market and in the entire region.”

Cernek and members of the Coushatta Tribal Council, and Coushatta Casino Resort General Manager Todd Stewart will join in the celebration with principals from TBE Architects, Yates Construction and the Wenaha Group.

The groundbreaking will officially mark the beginning of construction on the resort’s newest series of upgrades and expansions, which begins with building a new eight-story 204-room luxury hotel with 100 suites. It will be connected to the casino, literally steps away from the casino floor.

This expansion will increase capacity at Coushatta Casino Resort to over 1,000 rooms and will create additional employment opportunities for the region.

Coushatta Casino Resort is located on U.S. 165 in Kinder.
