Kah-nee-ta resort will close Wednesday
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The tribal-owned and operated Kah-nee-ta Resort & Spa will close for good Wednesday.
The Oregonian/OregonLive reports the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs Tribal Council voted last week to move forward with a plan to close the resort, ending speculation that the tribes could find a way to keep the facility and its 146 workers in business.
The golf course will also close.
The resort sits on the Warm Springs Reservation 70 miles (113 kilometers) north of Bend. The confederated tribes include 5,300 members from the Warm Springs, Wasco, and Paiute tribes.
According to a statement from the tribal government, the decision to close the resort was far from unanimous among the 11-member tribal council. Three members voted yes, five abstained from voting and the chairman did not vote.
