Former Vice Chief of the Carrier Sekani Tribal Council Terry Teegee is running for Regional Chief of the BC Assembly.
Many say Teegee is a fixture for First Nation advocacy in the north.
Teegee has experience in these situations, being elected as Tribal Chief in 2012, and he also sits on the Fraser Basin Council.
The duties of the Regional Chief involves representing 203 first nations across the province.
Teegee says about 40% of status First Nations people reside in the north, yet not many northern Chiefs have been elected for the position.
