Martin Chronicles Life as 'Chief'

It has been two years since former Choctaw chief, Phillip Martin, lost his bid for an eighth term in office.

Now, the former long-time chief is talking about his life as leader of the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians.

He has written a book titled "Chief". Martin told Newscenter 11 why he decided to write about his time as head of the tribe.

"I wanted to leave a history for Choctaw people to read, especially my family, my grandkids, and my great-grandkids," said Martin.

Martin said he's proud of his accomplishments during his years as chief , especially being able to turn the Choctaw Reservation into a tourist destination.

Martin is the guest for this weekend's "On the Record", which airs Sunday at 5:30 p.m. on WTOK, 11.1.
