Tribe spokesman Warren Strain said the name means "red creek" in Choctaw.

Strain told WDAM-TV that construction of Bok Homa Casino is ahead of schedule and a job fair will be held for the casino Oct. 22 at Sawmill Square Mall in Laurel. A second job fair will be held Oct. 29 in Biloxi.

Strain said the casino wants to hire more than 300 full- and part-time employees.

The casino will have 722 slot machines and a quick-serve eatery is planned for the 27,000-square-foot site. It is scheduled to open in mid-December.
