Raul Armenta was elected to serve on the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians Business Committee in 2016. He brings a strong background in tribal government to the role, having spent nearly two decades on the Santa Ynez Gaming Commission.
Raul was raised in Lompoc but spent summers and weekends visiting his grandparents and other relatives on the Santa Ynez Reservation. He also comes from a family of tribal leaders; his brother is former Tribal Chairman Vincent Armenta.
As Vice Chairman of the Business Committee, Raul looks forward to supporting the tribe’s continued success.
