Our Story

Seeking Prosperity and Self-Determination

The Poarch Creek Indians are descendants of a segment of the original Creek Nation that once covered almost all of Alabama and Georgia. Unlike many eastern Indian tribes, the Poarch Creeks were not removed from their Tribal lands and have lived together for almost 200 years in and around the reservation in Poarch, Alabama. The reservation is located eight miles northwest of Atmore, Alabama in rural Escambia County, about 57 miles east of Mobile.
The Poarch Creek Indians have fought hard to preserve their proud heritage while moving forward into the mainstream of today’s modern society. The Tribe’s determination to maintain both their identity and inherent right to self-govern is evident by their continued efforts to preserve their Tribal culture and improve their community.

“The Poarch Creek Indians are the only federally recognized Indian Tribe in the State of Alabama, operating as a sovereign nation with their own system of government and bylaws.”

The Poarch Creek Indians are an active partner in the state of Alabama, contributing to economic, educational, social and cultural projects benefiting both Tribal Citizens and residents of local communities and neighboring towns.
