Herb Norwegian will be Grand Chief of the Dehcho First Nations for a fifth time, defeating Tim Lennie in a first round of voting and Jim Antoine in round two.
Norwegian returns to the role having previously become the grand chief in 2003, 2006, 2012 and 2015. He replaces Stanley Sanguez, who served as interim grand chief since March after former leader Kenneth Cayen was removed in a vote of no confidence.
On Tuesday, Norwegian promised delegates at the Dehcho Annual Assembly he would bring a fierce approach to the negotiating table, placing the signing of the Dehcho land claim front and centre of his bid.
