TCC Debuts ‘Legacy of Our Elders’

Written by Communications_Dept on . Posted in All News Items, Newsletter Frontpage and Current

In March Tanana Chiefs Conference premiered the Legacy of Our Elders, a project that documents the lives of 18 Athabascan elders throughout the TCC region.

In 2015, TCC Communications secured a National Park Service Tribal Heritage Grant, which provided funding for TCC to interview elders from each of the six subregions to document their language, culture and history.

Through this grant the Legacy of Our Elders project was developed. This project includes several volumes of books and DVDs, each including interviews with 6 six elders – one from each subregion within the TCC region.

TCC Wraps Up 2017 Convention

Written by Communications_Dept on . Posted in All News Items, Newsletter Frontpage and Current

This year’s 2017 TCC Annual Convention was held at the Westmark Hotel in Fairbanks from March 13th through the 16th.

Tribal members and Chiefs discussed important issues facing our people including alcohol abuse, education, cancer strategies, and more. Our leaders were able to hear from State lawmakers and voice their concerns for their own communities.

TCC brought in former youth delegates or ‘emerging leaders’ who were able to coach and guide this year’s youth delegates during convention. The emerging leaders helped youth through some of the most powerful youth speeches ever heard at convention.’
