"A dialogue to build partnerships and address transportation-related issues of concern to agencies and federally-recognized Indian tribes"
The Poarch Band of Creek Indians was historically part of the Creek Confederacy with territory primarily in Georgia and Alabama. The Poarch represent one of the few tribes not removed to Indian Territory by the United States government, and have lived in the same general areas for nearly 150 years. They have a 400-acre reservation in southern Alabama on the Florida border, but tribal members also live off-reservation in Escambia County, Florida.
Federal recognition was obtained in 1984 and, currently, there are approximately 2,127 members of the Poarch Band of Creek Indians. Additional information on the Poarch Band of Creek Indians can be found on their website: http://www.poarchcreekindians-nsn.gov/.
