Amanda Leas Elected as new Chief

Ta’an Kwäch’än Council (TKC) Citizens have elected Amanda Leas as their new Chief during an election held on October 18, 2021.

Of the 195 ballots cast, Leas received 77 votes, winning the majority vote over candidates Christina Peters, Doris Anderson, and incumbent Chief Kristina Kane.

Amanda is a member of the Maggie Broeren Traditional Family. She brings an extensive background working as a TKC Manager and is also part of TKC’s Dance Group, a dedicated artist, and an active member of two Whitehorse school councils.

She says her priority as Chief will be putting Citizens’ needs first. Her goals include improving housing, economic development, and increasing sustainable land development and stewardship.

“I am incredibly humbled and very honoured to have been selected. I have been engaged with TKC’s government since I was a child and I bring to the table a proven record of hard work, dedication, and a strong commitment to our community. “

“Living in an urban centre it’s important to protect our land, while still providing our Citizens with a sustainable future. I will strive to ensure our priorities align with our traditions and our values.” The election planned for TKC Deputy Chief was postponed due to a lack of nominations for the position. A process to fill the Deputy Chief position will be determined at a future date.

Care and Respect

Dear Yukoner,

Due to COVID-19 regulations, Ta’an Kwäch’än Council (TKC)  lands staff continue to record a significant increase in the number of people utilizing Settlement Lands for recreational purposes. Because Whitehorse serves as a busy hub for Yukoners, the First Nation government is concerned about the negative impacts further use will have on these important areas. Please click here for more information.

Action required due to October 2020 windstorm

In October 2020, a windstorm caused a significant amount of tree blowdown located within TKC Traditional Territory, with some areas on R12A and R2A severely impacted. During a recent meeting with Yukon’s Forest Management Branch, Lands, Resources and Heritage (LRH) staff were updated about potential concerns for the overall forest health in the area resulting from this severe wind event. Read more
