Leadership

Keith Martin

At Large

Keith Martin was first elected to the Tribal Council in 2006. He currently serves on the Budget and Finance, Government Affairs and Rules, and Legislative Committees. He also chairs the Land and Natural Resources Committee. Martin served as Chairman of the PCI Gaming Board for nine years, during which the foundation was laid for the Tribe’s gaming operations with the construction of Wind Creek Casino and Hotel in Atmore and the expansion of the Montgomery and Wetumpka locations. He was instrumental in the formation of the Tribal authorities that have led to economic diversification and the development of additional sustainable revenue streams. He has served on the PCI Gaming Commission and the Creek Indian Economic Development Authority Board of Directors.

Mr. Martin represents the Tribe in lobbying efforts at the state and federal levels to advocate for the betterment of Native American rights and sovereignty. From his personal experience developing the economic viability of the Poarch Creek Indians, he understands that preserving sovereignty relies on the long-term growth of Tribal enterprises beyond gaming.

To that end, he has focused his efforts on growing educational opportunities, attracting new industries to the state, and working with local and state government to ensure diverse career opportunities for future generations.

Keith Martin was raised in the heart of Poarch, AL on Indian School Road. He attributes his love of the community to his grandmother, Elsie Holland and other family members in this close knit community. A graduate of Escambia County High School, he worked for local General Motors dealerships where he continued his education to earn various certifications from GM in Automotive Technology. He was a service manager for the local dealership until August 2007, when he became a full time Tribal Council Member. Martin continues to reside in the Poarch community and is a member of the Lottie Baptist Church. He is married to Rochel Martin and has four daughters; Samantha, Jessica, Rachel and Scarlet, and has eight grandchildren. He is committed to working with government officials and legislators at all levels to ensure the betterment of future generations.
