Members of the Gitwankgak Indian Band are calling for new band elections.
Upset band members say current band co-managers and councillors haven’t been looking out for their people.
Anita Davis is a band member and says the council isn’t transparent.
Davis says residents are also concerned over the lack of financial audits.
She says they want to have discussions with band the managers and the chief councillor to come up with a resolution.
Protesters occupied the band office last Thursday, and Davis says they’ll stay there until a solution is reached.
Gitwangak Chief Councillor Frederick Johnson says the band office is taking control of the community’s education due to concerns over the Gitwangak Education Society’s administration.
He also notes as a band, they have more options to apply for resources.
