stream for CIEDA as a key entity. We'll
make it happen."
That's a plan that would make the
Mobile Area Chamber of Commerce smile.
"Muskogee Technology is progressive,
innovative, and growing," says Darrell
Randle, the chamber's vice president of
small business development. "More
important, the company is focused on
more than itself."
Woodruff's tribal heritage is a constant
source of strength for him, his team
members, and his company as a whole. "Our
elders and their struggles are the very
foundation of who we are and how the rest
of us made it this far," he says. "We are
reaping the benefits today of their struggles
yesterday. We try to honor our elders and
seniors in every way possible. Prosperity will
allow us to give back to our tribe and
establish a strong foundation."
In fact, Woodruff and the tribal
community make special efforts to help
other tribes that are currently disadvantaged.
"We find honor in having the platform to

assist other struggling tribes who can't
obtain financial assistance and who are
seeking self-determination and sustainability
as we were not long ago," he says.
Toward that end, he meets with tribal
leaders in his capacity as treasurer of his tribe's
gaming authority board of directors and as a
member of the Federal Highway Tribal
Transportation Self-Governance Negotiated
Rulemaking Committee, whose members
include 17 appointed tribal delegates
representing more than 560 federally
recognized tribes in the United States.
Competition drives Woodruff. "I think
we're a hidden gem," he says, noting that
Muskogee Technology's achievements
sometimes go unseen due to his tribe's much
larger gaming/hospitality industry activities. "Gaming is so massive, it casts a large
shadow on the tribe's other smaller businesses. It's hard to top that act, but we intend
to get there," Woodruff adds. "Our time will
come. We make things move, and we make
things work. We bring new life and passion."
